Hi, I'm new to this forum

OS: Windows 7 home premium 64bit

Recently I got a trojan on my computer and I removed it with malwarebytes(full scan cannot complete, it always crashes), superantispyware, spyware terminator, security essentials(quick scan), spybot s&d, bitdefender quickscan and comodo(fullscan).

lost all system restore points too so no option to restore to previous date

it seems to be all gone but now I cannot run .exe files from certain areas like winrar and I cannot change UAC settings because it says "These files can't be opened. Your Internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened." and under details it says c:\windows\system32\useraccountcontrolsettings.exe

also it disabled my malwayrebytes, mbamgui.exe in the same manner

the trojan I got infected with was either a:

VirTool.Win32.Obfuscator.hg!b1 (v)

is there maybe something I missed?

I'm going to do a full scan with security essentials, microsoft windows malicious software removal tool, and sophos anti-rootkit

i just tried installing combofix but the security block kept popping up

My other user accounts work fine its just my administrator account isn't working right
