Hi all,

First time posting, but I've been a constant researcher of the bleeping computer forums for working resolutions to the more irritating infections that I get.

So here is my main problem, I cannot get rid of these fake UAC registry entries. I can clean out the majority of the files, but there is one lingering file+the registry entries that are proving to be a pain to remove.

There are other infections, however they are easily removed when you disconnect the internet and run mbam and SAS with all but three of the options checked "close browser" "scan for tracking cookies" and one other option that escapes me.

If I try to run mbam either renamed or otherwise with the internet connection in tact, all it does is linger in task manager. Renaming SAS is how I was able to run that, however currently if I leave an internet connection active and I run the cleanup, DCOM causes the system to shut down.

Also, on startup, there is an iexplore.exe window that lingers in task manager, and it keeps poping up. With that, IE won't save settings either, every time I run it, it's like it was never run before. Also I'm told that there are popup windows that appear while browsing.

Initially the issue was Win PC Antivirus 2009, there is a lingering presence of it, but it seems that the UAC is the base of the problem as that is the only part I'm unable to remove fully.

A couple of details before the log, windows firewall is not enabled as I am doing the cleaning remotely for the most part. And I did not generate a DDS report. However I have a GMER log which is attached.

Any help you can provide is much appreciated!
