I am having a problem  Some of our users are getting infected with trojan zeroaccess.  After I have removed the trojan i am unable to start the firewall service.  I noticed that the dependencies cannot start either.  I get access denied. The only work around i found is to do a system restore pre infection.

Is there a question Mike? you seem to know the answer already.


zeroaccess is particularly nasty, and I'd be doing the same thing if my users got it.


edit: this removal guide shows a way to completely remove it, it's pretty resilient and can linger even after you think it's out. Personally I would reformat any critical machines that got this infection.
