Taskman is a critical service that is needed by WinXP It allows the viewing and ending of active processes running on your system. In addition, you can use Task Manager to view system information, such as CPU and memory usage statistics. __________________

On my comp there appears every now and again a taskmgr.exe in c:/documentsand settings/(username)/Start menu/programs/startup folder. Even if deleted, it reappears, when I launch any program. The "bad guy" which recreates it is taskman.exe, 15k located in C:/Windows (and in some other folders). That file always recreates itself. It can be erased but reappears the next moment - the virus is giving care to this file... I didn't find program tools that identify or eliminate it. I'll try with safe boot, hope I'll be able to delete once for all this hook. This variant is surely virus.

Taskman is part of Windows, and manages a number of tasks running on your system.

Windows Task Manager - Perfectly safe BUT viruses and trojens are always mascerading as them. If you've not got taskmanager open and this process is still running (that you can see using hijack this for example) then you have a problem
