  1. Hey,

    I have been recently having a few problems with my PC. I have installed Windows XP and CA Internet Security Suite 2007. Below is a list of problems I’ve been having:
    1) Cannot run taskmanager/regedit/gpedit e.t.c.
    2) Cannot view/make changes to folder options under my documents
    3) Cannot run selected programs such as Spyware Doctor and CCleaner

    Attached are logs of various scans from Malwarebytes’, Super Anti-spyware and HJT as per suggested in spyware removal threads. Please help! Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards

    I ran another HJT scan, I selected those and ‘fixed checked’. I ran another scan just to make sure, and O7 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, DisableRegedit=1 showed up again. I tried to run another scan and ‘fix checked’ a few more times, but it still appeared when I scanned. I tried running taskmanager e.t.c. and tried viewing folder options under my documents but without success. I updated Acrobat Reader as per requested.

    Run HJT again and delete the following

    Restart system

    There seem to be a program that keeps undoing changes that you've made. Maybe it is the above.

    After you have restarted the system Run HJT again and remove the following.
    Restart the system. Run HJT again, and post new log.

    Let me know if the other problems persists.

    The system is not clean yet.

    These HJT entries remain unaddressed:
