Hi, my nephews downloaded some games onto my mother's computer over the weekend. They also downloaded W32/ZAcc-Inf-A and a few other viruses, which Sophos AntiVirus notified me of when I went to check something on her computer.
She has an HP Pavilion with Windows Vista 64 bit. I don't have a reinstall CD but I do have a recovery partition but would prefer not to use it since the only problem with the OS is that the Firewall won't turn on.
Here is what I did thus far:
Ran Spybot S&D, removed the one adware entry it found.
Ran RogueKiller, Adwcleaner, SecurityCheck successfully.
Ran a full scan with Malware Bytes Anti Malware. Nothing detected.
Adjusted the Services for DCom, DHCP to recommended settings as detailed in the forums.
Ran Windows Firewall Fix-it tool.
Rewrote the registry keys as shown in http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/434478/windows-firewall-doesnt-show-up-in-services-wont-turn-on/
Firewall Still won't turn on. I'm wondering what to do next, please advise.
