  1. I really need help, some virus basically took administrator powers away from me, and made itself administrator i heard it was my registry that got hacked, and i need a way to reboot my computer, and the restore to previous date does not work good. Also i don't know any information about my laptop besides it being a Toshiba satellite.

    Would you please let us in on your diagnostic process that leads you to such conclusion?

    It doesn't let me change my background image, it says i don't have the privileges, and i cant see my control panel, and i saw a account named administrator that wasn't me on my documents and settings

    also it doesnt allow me to delete the virus files because they are protected..
