I believe I have successfully removed all viruses/malware (there were a bunch) from this pc, using MBAM, SDFix, ATF-Cleaner and SuperAntiSpyware.
I have run a scan with McAfee and AVG Free and they don't find anything.
However the infection has caused some more problems: I managed to create a new admin account and it looks OK.
The existing accounts (3 of them) all lacked everything but "Printers and Faxes" in the Start menu. I found most of it in the advanced settings but the Log Off button is still missing.
There's also a VIRUS ALERT! text in the taskbar, which I cannot get rid of.
Furthermore when I try to run regedit, from these accounts, I get this pop-up: "Editing the register has been inactivated by your administrator".
Can the user accounts be recovered, or do I have to delete them and create new ones?
