I tried to run DDS.COM in order to be able to post in the "Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs" forum, but it doesn't launch. Gmer launches fine though.
I use a limited account on Windows Vista Home Premium SP2, with UAC and parental controls enabled. So, of course, if I try to run an application that is not in the list of allowed applications, I get a prompt asking for the admin password, or I have to run it using right click then run as administrator. However, I cannot select "run as administrator" when I right click on DDS.com, and I don't get prompted for the admin password, so I can't run the software. Also, ever since I suspected a trojan infection (today), I have found that the prompt for the admin password never appears anymore. I used to get a message from parental controls or something (sorry, I don't remember the details) that asked me whether I want to run the application or not, and then, I had the option to enter the admin password and allow the application to run.
Now, I have to force applications to run as administrator through right click, then run as etc... Except that for some applications, such as DDS.com, the option to run as admin is not available.
If possible, I'd rather not log into an admin account to launch DDS.com, because it appears that my computer is infected with trojans, and that logging into the administrator account could make the situation worse, or so I've been told.
I hope to get an answer.
