i downloaded rkill and tdss killer but when i try running the programs i get this message "windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. you may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

also search engines such as yahoo! and google keep redirecting me to other sites.

also i am not able to access system repair in the boot menu, the screen just goes blank and says "other user" when i try to log in.

damn, i know too much but i want to get these issues resolved...
