If I type "regedit" into my start->run box, it immediately opens and closes. The same happens when I type "cmd". I researched the internet and was told this is probably caused by malware. So I bought, downloaded, installed, and scanned my system with Norton Internet Security 2009. The problem still occurred. So I downloaded ccleaner and cleaned everything including the registry. The problem still occurred. So I downloaded Trend Micro HijackThis, but have not done anything with it other than a system scan.

I followed the post at the top of the forum for the steps I should take and did them all except Kaspersky is going to take me a long time so it's currently running now. Can someone please help me?

edit: I solved the problem by downloading emco malware destroyer
