Please help,


Seems that some virus has disabled administrator rights on my computer. Network is disabled (when i go to control panel network connections it is blank)
Ad-aware is also disabled. Impossible to reinstall it and also to install any other program that needs admin rights. I even cannot paste a file i copy.
Computer runs slow.
I scan with what I could cureIt, Mcafee stringer, avg spyware remoover, smythfraud, but nothing changes.

Please help. i run a laptop with XP SP1 and no security updates as this is company pc I`m not allowed to install any updates!

Thanks in advance.

Hello km22,

I see you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.
You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
