Hello,

My computer is suddenly telling me that multiple functions such as the taskmanager, control panel, and "right click" properties, are now restricted by the Administrator. I am the only one who uses this computer and I have only one user account that I designated as the Admin that I use. Out of the blue, there are restrictions on this account and I am unable to access any settings, plus on the welcome screen, under my user profile, it no longer says "Admin Account".

To try to solve my problem, I have run all my anti virus/malware/spyware/adware programs and deleted the files detected. I have also attempted to access Admin settings using Microsoft TweakUI (which turned out to also be blocked) and I have run RatsCheddar in hopes of restoring my original permissions.

I am also now constantly getting a "warning message" that says something about unauthorized copies of system and internet files and that I should download this antispyware program. The program that it wants me to download is WinAntiVirus, which I know is a fake malware program.

My computer runs Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 SP2.

Here is my HijackThis log:

  • Download Combofix to your desktop.

  • Doubleclick combofix.exe

  • Follow the prompts.
Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.

When finished, and after reboot if it asks for one, combofix will open again to gather the necessary information for the log. This may take a while so please be patient. When done, Combofix will close and a log should open called combofix.txt.

Post the contents of this log in your next reply along with a new hijackthislog.

Please do not post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt unless I ask you to.

I actually have fixed the problem with the admin permissions as well as removed all the virus/malware from my computer. I just needed to look around on the web and do a little research.

Thanks anyway,
