I used MalwareBytes which found 2 viruses. I edited the registry to remove various rogue entries and did further scans with Spybot, AVG and Defender - nothing else was found.
The position now is that 2 users are still unaffected but the original user cannot run programs either from shortcuts or from the "program file" directory. They can run windows explorer with a right click on the "Start" key. I wondered if this was because it was in a different directory to the other programs.
Can anyone help please?
