I got a hijacker that would not let me access anything on the computer. I rebooted in safe mode and did a system restore that got rid of the problem. When I started COx Cable, I got McAffee which found and deleted a few probs. I later tried to unzip a file and recieved an access denied. I tried to edit permissions but it did not work. I later discovered that my documents, pictures, videos, and music are all locked out except through word, WMP, paint, etc.Going into admin to change permissions gives me an error saving to inprocserver32. I would delete and restore the whole damned system if I could just save my pictures. I have fumbled around in regedit but haven't located the problem (not quite sure where to look). I have noticed that I dont have an "HKEY_USERS\s-1-5-21-domain-500" entry that microsoft says I'm supposed to have. I wonder if the malware didn't hide the admin and leave me with a dummy. Can they do that? ANy help would be appreciated. - Dave
