it's popping up the same chinese websites in IE (even though i never use IE), it's disabled task manager, regedit, and prevents you from running most spyware/utilities. If you try to start in safe mode you get a blue screen. Hijack this wouldn't open, but combofix gave a little bit of relief, after i ran it taskmanager came back from the dead(I use process explorer mostly though), but now the taskbar is locked down and .reg's won't run.
I'm going crazy here.
any help would be highly appreciated.
edit: apparently cut and paste still works in photoshop, but its hit and miss everywhere else.
