    Do you mean that you can't get into control panel at all? Or you can't get into one of the options in control panel?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is infected with malware.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    You could try a system restore to before your problem began.

    However, as long as the malware remains on your system, you`re going to have serious problems.

    If you don`t want to follow the instructions, I suggest reformatting and reinstalling. It`s up to you.

    At the very least, you should post a HJT log as per these instructions.

    Regards Howard :)

    The control panel is probably disabled via the entry:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies\Explorer\NoControlPanel

    This is probably set to 1 and it should be 0

    Even if you do fix this, if you have any form of Malware on your system, you should get it removed. This can be done as said, by reinstalling Windows or you may be able to find something to clean it. To be honest, reinstalling is probably less hassle and quicker.

    Your system is riddled with malware.

    I suggest you seriously consider a reformat and reinstall.

    If you really don`t want to do this, then you will need to follow all the instructions in this thread HERE.

    Please be aware, if you go for the cleaning option, I can`t guarantee your system will be ok once we`ve finished with the clean up.

    Yes, you`ve attached the HJT log properly.

    However, may I refer you to my post above.

    Like I said earlier, if you don`t want to follow the instructions, just reformat and reinstall. In fact, given the amount of malware on your system, this may actually be the easiest and best course of action.
