    what is Program Manager?


    what is Program Manager, and why does it always keep me from restarting? shutdown works fine, but when i choose restart, i get a message saying Program Manager won't close.

    this isn't Windows 3.1! what's going on?

    (build 7000)

    It sounds more like a virus to me....

    This says windows vista doesn't have it at all, so I would assume neither does 7.

    Sounds kind of suspicious.

    That is curious AFAIK , it shouldn't be on 7000.

    Have you tried running mbam to see if it comes up with anything?

    well, the interesting thing is that it's not a running process. at least not one that i can identify. i also have not been able to reproduce the problem, but i have seen it come up several times over the last few days.

    i'm running ESET so i'd be surprised if anything got through...

    Try also running Spybot SD , update it and perform a system scan...
