I've been havein this lil problem with my computers for some time now. I'm unsure what is really going on, but they all have issues that I'm unable to solve.(Please Help!) I'll start with my two netbooks. Both having same, or similar issues. I've started from a clean install (more then once). Things start out ok. Next day stuff starts getting weird. Folders start to get the lil shortcut arrow in the corner all over the place, I've some how all sorts of desktop.ini folders everywhere, the more I dig, and run software against it the more strange and screwed up stuff becomes. There are wierd file begining with "$" all over also. Half of my control panel items are missing. From windows install I start with two users. My admin account, and the guest account (which I disable immediately). A day or so later I end up with "All Users, Default User, Default, Public, My Acct, Cookies, and Recent. All users, default user, and my acct have lil lock icon on them. I eventually end up having very very limited access to my computer. Eventually loosin the ability to change, add or remove any thing. Getting messages saying I do not have admin rights to do these things, access is denied, not the trusted installer, and my favorite...please contact your system admin! So after a boat load of online searching, and a lot of wasted time. I found that if I go to c:\users\myacct\Application Data there are 27 Application Data folders. And. 27 sets of other folders to match them that appear to have all my os files scattered throughout them. I have tons of .ink files also! I've rebooted into safe mode, and enabled the boot logger(which end up being a hundred miles long) and there is weird stuff there too,(did not load driver @hal.inf, @netrasa.inf, @cpu.inf, @msports.inf, @display.inf, @oem5.inf, @netsstpa.inf). There's probably a ton of other weird things I'm forgettin to mention! But this has stressed me out and caused enuff damage in my life! I just want it to go away! (Someone please help) Thank You!

With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team. I would like you to start a new thread and post a DDS log HERE and include a link to this thread. Please make sure that you read the information about getting started before you start your thread.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient. Help is on the way!

Malware topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic406988.html

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MR Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
