Problem Summary: tskmanager.exe

Whenever I hit cntrl alt delete to get out of a problem, or if my computer is stalling, I get replications of tskmanager.exe and the processes can add up to as high as 150. I try to shut the program down, and sometimes this is very hard to do. I believe this is a virus or trojan? How do I get rid of this? How can I be sure it's a virus?
