    From what I have read it is malware (malicious software)

    ctrl +alt + del open up procsesses and kill it, if it dows not stop try to end the process tree, then boot into safe mode do same again and go to c\windows\system32\taskdir.dll and delete it.

    Could have saved you the effort of doing a restore if I ws in the office.. Taskdir is a trojan and is simple to remove ( comes fro visiting grany porn sites )... Anyways, any more issues like this just PM me and I'll be happy to help..



























    /joking about the granny porn sites BTW, taskdir is very common
