Well, to start off with, my recycle bin has disappeared, and Tweak UI and other MS tools do not bring it back (or the customize desktop - it does not even show up in the Icon List). Second off the shutdown button in the start menu has been whacked, similar stuff. I have scanned an updated Malaware Byte's, Norton, Spybot S&D, and nothing comes up; also it seems my command prompt is partly functional (isn't that strange?). My Task manager says everything is run by an unknown user, and I cannot end anything. At first though, this virus was brining up Porno vids on the computer. The system is slower, and is probably the weirdest (and hardest to find) virus or malware I have personally seen yet. I have yet to restart my PC (It tried to have a shutdown prompt earlier, luckily I knew how to run the shutdown -a (which now when I do any shutdown command on the cmd it says 'Network path not found'), and am wondering if I should leave it running or no?

If all else fails, I could just transfer to backup hard drive and reload the system, no? Any assistance will be appreciated. :thumbsup:

It has also made a message 'You do not have sufficient security privileges to run system restore.' and the user accounts are not available. :thumbsup:

Furthermore, hitting alt+tab to switch applications there is a white box that it skips over (like 6 normal applications on the bottom, yet a mysterious 7th box in the alt+tab list).

Not to bother anyone, but how long do responses usually take here? I have run out of ideas and am just running every online scanner I can think of. Panda active scan has found 3 infected (3 more suspicous)... Still scanning slooowly. 16%, 45mins later.... It seems like 2g memory don't help for online scans.
