Hello to all. Thankyou for taking the time to look at this for me. I can normally sort out most computer problems but MAN this one has me beat. I have a problem when I want to access my control panel, system restore or my computer properties. I keep getting an error message saying Another program using this file and I am denied access. Currenty I have used 2 online scans, AdAware, Spybot and ewido. The only bad thing that was found was a H@t keys h@@k,dll (nasty). I am stuck in what to do now because I cannot disable system restore to perform some deeper scans. As with the control panel, the system restore is being used by another program. I would like to post my latest Hijack this log file and hope that one of you smart people out there can help me with this. I have found someone with a similar problem on this forum but the log files look different and I do not have the same processes running as them so it was not much help to me. Oh yeah I also tried to run in safe mode but control panel is still unresponsive even in Safe mode. I read through what to do before posting and have done all I was told to do except for the things that have to be done with system restore off as I cannot turn it off. I hope I have done everything correct before posting. Have included ewido and hijack this report. Appreciate any help. Am really stuck. Thankyou.
