Two days ago my laptop was infected with a nasty TDSS rootkit and have been having the iastor.sys BSOD every time I boot into windows or safemode.
While attempt to get through to the command-line option with 10 tries, 9 times got bsod and restarted but
I managed to get to the command prompt option via F8 and used the Kaspersky TDSSkiller tool to remove the rootkit.
I have also scanned my computer and remove the lone registry key with Malwarebytes Anti-Virus tool in safe mode.
Upon restarting my windows as normal, I got the "unable to open GfxUI.exe due to restriction in Internet security setting."
How do I fix this?
EDIT: I have additional problems apart from the above mentioned. I cannot run defragment or chkdsk utilities in windows 7 as it is giving me errors. I tried to do a chkdsk on reboot but the tool never started upon rebooting...
It seems after the removal of the TDSS rootkit, I am having lots of problem like viewing an about dialog of certain programs will cause DBK32 error message to popup. Can't enable the protection module under the protection tab in MalwareBytes' Anti-Virus. I can't access Windows Defender (I try to open it via control panel, a window open but closed immediately). I can't close some programs via system tray like LogMeIn, Unable to open "Services" due to some activeX issue. Can't change UAC settings via MSConfig as I got "Access Denied" error, etc...
Seems like there is some system files corrupted or something... I ran sfc /scannow and it says I have some corrupted files but cannot be fixed...
Here is the uploaded log file as it is too big to attach here:
