I've already looked at a few posts about malware removal, got a few logs to speed this along. I didn't notice it went missing until I went to remove some programs. And wouldn't you know it? The Control Panel is missing. Tried clicking on my name at the top of the start menu and received the "Restrictions: This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." OS is Windows XP. Any help would be much appreciated.
