I had the win 7 antivirus, virus on my laptop, i used this site for instructions on removing this virus, I followed the instructions and it seems to have removed the virus. Now when I start the laptop the programs pinned to my startup menu do not start and if I want to start a program I have to start by right clicking and starting as system admin. Not sure what to do now to fix this.

Run the registry fix

http://www.winhelponline.com/fileasso/exe_fix_w7.zip

Go to

%appdata%local folder

Make sure you dont have xyz.exe file which is vista rogue exe file

Malware bytes doesnt remove it

This win7 rogue acts as rootkit dropper.Check for PING.EXE in task manager

Good luck

I don't have PING.EXE in my task manager, and I am unable to open the zip file.

What happens when you try to open the zip file? Also, do you indeed not have the xyz.exe file on your comp?

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

got the zip file to open, it seems to be better, I haven't checked for the xyz.exe file yet. McAfee keeps telling me that the firewall is not on, but I am not sure if it doing that because I got Microsoft Security now.

The McAfee removal tool may help.

Be sure to do a normal Uninstall using Add/Remove programs first.

Thanks guys, I'm running the McAfee removal tool and then reactivating Microsoft Security Essentials. I'll probably end up backing up the files I need and reformatting the drive just to be safe.
