I am in desperate need of help as my computer is becoming unusable. I believe I have a version of WinAntiVirus Pro 2007.

When i logged on to XP i got a message in a dialogue box saying "Warning! Potential Spyware Operation! Your computer is making unauthorised copies of your system and internet files. Run full scan now to prevent unauthorised access to your files! click here to download spyware remover ... YES/NO".

i knew there was sumthing wrong so I clicked no. I've tried Spybot and Superantispyware but no avail. There is not much I can do as all registry changes are denied and I cannot even access my control panel as this is blocked as well.

other info/changes on my comp:
1. my internet explorer's home page has been changed to google.com automatically and when i click on internet properties i get a message saying "this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions placed on this computer. please contact the system administrator".
2. when i try to access control panel it says the same "this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions placed on this computer. please contact the system administrator".

I also have been frustrated with WinAnitSpyPro. When I ran Smitfraudfix v 2.219 it seems to have worked. Even when Smitfraudfix was running and it asked you to repair the registry y/n, I typed y and I still got the warning "registry editing has been disabled by your administrator" message. Can't say for sure if it did work completely. Ran RoqueRemover and so far so good but I cannot see my control panel or run regedit or anything like that. How do I get these back? Any help would be greatly appreciated.....

If you have a problem you would like to discuss, please start your own topic.
This will help to avoid the confusion, of trying to help two or more people, in the same thread, with different problems.
Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be totally different due to different hardware, software, system requirements, etc....
