:thumbsup: Hello

Yesterday my computer got hijacked by something that put 3 icons on my desktop that direct to Viruswebprotect2008.com My wife help me some and she found a tread in here about the same. I try to follow the directions given on that tread but I have this problems:

I can not run the SDFix with the normal user because my options on the bar are reduced to almost none, I do not have run, control panel, nothing.

So I started the computer in safe mode and log as the administrator (with password) then I run this programs:

ATF Cleaner

They found and eliminated more than 25 treats, however here is my problem now:

SDFix after running says it will restart the computer and run again, however I do not allow the computer to start in normal mode because I fear that what ever is there will attack again. So it does not run again. However the first time I run it it says it detected and eliminated 6 treats.

I can not create new users with administrator rights and password, if I do so they will appear on the log in screen but the password will not work. If I create users with no password then they do not appear on hte log in screen, even when they are created. If you try to create them again it tells you that user already exist.

I am afraid to start the computer in normal mode with the administrator user, is the only who had a password before the attack and is the only one that is not affected. If I run in normal mode and use my password I am ffraid it will be hijacked and then I will loose all access.

I can not run Superspyware I try to install it and I get a message telling me that the administrator policies prevent me from installing this program. This is the only occurence of this kind of message so far, which makes me believe that Superspyware can actually eliminate whatever is in my computer and thats why they disallow the instalation.

I am running out of options and I use my computer to work so I desperately need it back. Any help will be highly appreciated.
