Do you have to log on to a specific user profile to get rid of some viruses or
is logging on as admin just fine?

Hi qijino and Welcome -
Are you just wanting to use your own Antivirus, or do you wish to post in the Am I Infected area of this forum, linked below -
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum103.html

If you post here, just read the directions written in that section of the forum.
If you only wish to use your own Antivirus then the Admin profile should be OK -

Thank You -

I am just wondering if there is any virus in the universe that requires me to log on to my windows user profile to run the antivirus.
Or in another case: I am just wondering if there is any virus in the universe that requires SOMEONE ELSE to log on to their windows user profile to run their antivirus.

OR

No matter what virus I and WE are infected with, it can ALWAYS be removed through my and their administrator account with an antivirus. combofix, AVG, malwarebytes, avast, mcafee, synaptic, etc......... ??????????

No not all can be removed like that and there are some that cannot be removed.
