This is my first post and while I'm by far no expert I THOUGHT I knew a thing or two about computers (apparently not enough because I find myself here in this predicament ( in all honesty I can be a bit ignorant at times). I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium on an Acer Aspire M5-481T. Nothing fancy but it WAS working just fine. Recently, I took a trip to Miami and made the big mistake of jumping on a public network with no protection and caught some kind of bug. Internet doesn't respond as usual, websites wont display properly and I think worst of all I've tried Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, avast! Free Antivirus, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Revo Uninstall Pro and apparently I can't kick a few bugs or viruses (whatever they are) because I have lost administrative rights (which I had all along because thats how I set it up and it's my own personal laptop). I have run quick and complete scans with all of the previously mentioned programs and have visited a few forums looking for an answer. I read the thread titled
"Virus That Disables Admin Rights HELP"---http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/483782/virus-that-disables-admin-rights-help/
and saw a member post about a solution called ComboFix but unfortunately after reading the instructions on the link, I just don't feel comfortable enough following them because I just don't know what I'm specifically dealing with...Can someone help me find a solution? I don't want to give up yet because I know I can fix it, I just need HELP!
