referred to this forum by my helper from a thread in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum [ http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/597311/repost-kaspersky-rescue-disk-warns-of-packedwin32kraphc-trojan/page-2#entry3876361 ]
As per the most recent logs, it appears that the Trojan infection that I may have had has been cleared. However there is a continuing problem in that 'Programs and Features' out of Control panel will not launch, so I cannot get to 'Add/Remove Programs' either from that pathway or by entry into the Search bar from the Start button.This is true in the main user profile and others resident on the PC, even one just created to account for a corrupted profile and to allow for transfer of files to the new profile.
Sfc /scannow has been run several times to repair system files to no good result as well as earlier attempts to reset to an earlier restore point. Chkdsk has also been run and supposedly all questionable clusters have been repaired.
Blocking access to 'Add/Remove Programs' is often a sign of infection, but scans say that I am clear. System restore procedures have also not been effective.
Any thoughts other than a reinstall of the OS? I've been trying to clear this for almost 3 weeks and to no final resolution...the above thread only accounts for the last week...
All suggestions are welcome.
