I got this wonderful virus yesterday and with the help of you members I was able to remove most of it.The problem is that my computer is only working under ADMINISTRATOR and not me as an operator/user. All of my programs are listed but empty. No internet providers are listed. If I go to this site or try too, the search engine ( if I cheat and get it to work through a back door ) will redirect me to Yellow Pages or some car dealership. If I do manage to down load any type of program it just vanishes never to be seen again.( under me as an operator )
If I use MSCONFIG, the virus name still appease in the menu.I can select another option but cannot delete the virus named start up.I cannot do a "Restore to an earlier date" as there are no set points to be found.Only today shows up. MS Tools is empty.All options for a fix are gone.( I downloaded Glary Utilities to try the restore function )
so far I have downloaded and ran:
the computer is just limping along. I cannot restore "my settings" under my name. Right clicking in the screen does nothing. REGISTRY looks to be OK after a check for problems.
Please help.
Thank you.

Since you have a ComboFix log, I suggest that you post it (along with narrative description/summary you have posted here) at BC Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum22.html
