I am not sure what virus i have but I have lost my administrator rights, the ability to connect to the Internet, lost USB visibility, printers and I am unable to change any of my McAfee proctection - most of them are off and I cannot turn back on.  I have followed a couple of forums.  I have run rkill, unhide, dds, aswMBR, ExeFix, tdsskiller with mbam, FSS and Combofix.  No luck still the same problem.


I get "the specified service does not exist as an installed service" on almost everything in normal mode.


I am running Windows 7 Professional with Service pack 1.  32-bit operating system


I have been using McAfee Total Protection, but right now i am running Malwarebytes to see if it finds anything. 


I would appreciate help in getting rid of this virus.
