I logged in as admin. Everything seemed to run normally. No indication of any problem. Tried one of my spare user IDs. Everything runs fine.
The dialog box for "what program do you want to use" has a "search on the web option". Clicking on this brings up a new version of the same dialog, referenceing file "ssvagent.exe". However IE does open behind this, connecting to a Microsoft site.
Also noticed that when I tried to modify the window color and appearance (right-click>personalize), that routine pulled up the same "what program" dialog.
Here is the link to my topic about removing the malware, including the whole story of how I got to this point.
The question now is, is it possible to repair this problem for this user, or do I transfer the settings and files to a new user?
Is there a registry item corrupted? System file missing?
Thank you for your help!
