This morning my pc got infected with a ransomware aka ukash virus. Unfortunately I already got infected with it last month, but last time I've got rid of it rather quickly with combofix. Unfortunately combofix didn't work this time, so I tried using polifix.exe which didn't work the last time. First I ran it in safe mode with cmd, and after a second it said something like "no files found", then I ran it in safe mode and the message was the same, third time I ran it in normal mode with the same message, but apparently it removed the virus. Then I run a scan and deleted a few issues with malwarebytes's anti-malware. Right now the virus issue is solved, but my computer doesn't work as before the virus:
1.)In task manager only around 20% of the usual tasks are running
2.)I can't see image "preview" in explorer, although I can open images
3.)I also can't set background image
I tried system restore, but it given no result; all programs are enabled in msconfig, but most that should be running don't appear on task manager. I'm using Windows Vista.
I would greatly appreciate if someone could help me out.
