Hello, I had virtumonde + vundo (possibly others) infect my computer on Thursday. Symptoms were * IE opening whenever I opened firefox. * Could not connect to google. * Can not access add/remove programs, user managment, and others in control panel. * Can not access properties in desktop->right click menu. * Random named (EG: zxfiloerg.dll) appearing and recreating in windows/system32, also reg keys for them and some system files with the same name but .ini extension (although the ini's were binary files). I have done all scans as per the instructions except the online one because it was going to take 42+ hours(!) I couldnt find AVG AntiSpyware (because its been rolled into there main anti virus prog ?) so I used the anti virus prog instead. All seems fine, no pop up browsers and the dll files have stopped being created in /system32 The problems I am left with are just not being able to access Add remove progs, and Users. Plus 'properties' in the right click menu on the desktop. The error is a MessageBox that says " Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.". Click OK and it disappears. I CAN access these if I boot in to safe mode. I have tried creating new users but they cant access the CP items in normal mode either. Just looking for suggestions... Very many thanks.
