So to do this I have to find cmd.exe and then open as administrator?
DOS/32A -- Protected Mode Run-time Version 7.2
...indicates to me that you did not open the command prompt in "Administrative" mode. The Protected Mode relates to the UAC in windows vista.
Yes, task bar, start button, system tray and icons are all fine. The background is black (for all users) and I am unable to change it through the vista "personalize" menu. In the "personalize" menu all the previews are just large .jpg icons.
Is your black screen just the background? Is all else ok...ie, start button, task bar etc. all present?
Both actually, first I just double clicked and a small bar (about 2 inches across) came on the screen, filled up (90 seconds or so) and then disappeared. At this point I waited for 10 to 15 minutes and after nothing happened I remembered and ran as administrator. The small bar came up and this time it took a long time to fill (about 20 minutes) and then just sat there for another 45 minutes. After that I rebooted into safe mode and tried it there, at that point combo fix behaved like it did the first time i.e., filling quickly and then disappearing.
Bob SAID: Also, I should ask...when you ran combofix, did you right-click on it and select "Run as administrator? or did you just double-click it?
bobpsmith SAID: I was able to turn off the eventlog through services.msc but it did no good.

Instruction from post #2
Is this what the command should have done?
Just a quick question, how rare is my case, where the malware kills all anti-malware programs and takes away permissions?
Not so rare anymore. This infection has been showing up more and more lately.
...should have been worded quite differently for you I see.
Please do the following:
Open your command prompt (start-->run...then type CMD and click OK") and paste the following...
