a virus or spyware that has taken over my administrator rights on my computer, task bar and registry are disabled too.. i get pop up msg every time i open firefox and redirected me to this site - http://search.conduit.com/?ctid=CT2418376&....earchSource=13.. and whenever I go to use a program, it asks "what program would you like to open this with" and it deletes application of programs i already installed T_T

i did some scanning but failed to clean infected files

any advice you could give would be so grateful for.. I am hoping to avoid having to do a total reinstall.. T_T

thanks in advance, for your responses.

Download this file and save it to your desktop:


Double-click the file to run it. A command window will open briefly. Then run another quick scan with Malwarebytes. Post the Malwarebytes log.
