I got one of those pesky programs that try to scan your computer and then sell you a service to fix it. I terminated the program, but some damage was already done. I have run a Windows restore, run the rkill programs, and installed and run the Malwarebytes program. Both the Windows Security Essentials and Malwarbytes programs are finding no additional viruses (after finding several and cleaning).

Currently, the remaining problem is many of my files have gone missing. Meaning icons are gone from my desktop and folders come up as “empty” when they are opened, although there appears to be files in them when I conduct a “Search”.

The other remaining issue is my inability to execute some programs. I get a “No write permissions to directory” dialogue box when I try to run my H&R Block tax software, for example.

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium (64 bit) SP2.
