I dont understand why my friends install a programs in my computer.
Now, i couldn't get the command line, Windows Task manager, registry editor. I thought what i can resolved problem.

I type:
tasklist > list.exe

save as with a.bat
Now, i sure that ntsystem.exe is causing. And i want to kill this process without any software.
type: taskkill /im ntsystem.exe - i thought that my code is correct but ntsystem.exe wasn't killed

I tried with a soft like hijackthis and kill process. it's very good. What isn't good with my code?
Please tell me.

    tasklist >c:\list.txt
    (txt instead of exe, no spaces after >)

    But, since this is most likely a virus,worm,trojan,adware,spyware,whatever -- it might be a good idea to at least try the standard tools, adaware, spybot search+destroy, etc.. I have grown to like "Spyware Dr." (but it's payware)

    Accepted Solution

    Sometimes, malware come in 2's. In these cases, if you attempt to kill one malware-process, the other process will restart it. These things are truly bitches, and require booting into Safe Mode -> .. to remove them.

    But, if this isn't the case, then double check the suntax of your command here:

    Perhaps try adding the /f parameter:

        taskkill /f /im ntsystem.exe

    Otherwise, have you tried using PSKILL.exe ?  (It's an external).

    KillProcess = "ntsystem.exe"

    Set ProcessList = GetObject("winmgmts://.").InstancesOf("win32_process")

    For Each Process In ProcessList
       If Process.Name = KillProcess Then
       End If

    It looks like you can do command line. I ask if you need help actually running commands, or are only looking for ways to kill processes, for which some have made suggestions. There are other tricks to run commands or to boot differently.
