Hey guys, I recently started having some issues with my pc. I am running Win XP SP3 and running McAfee anti-virus program. It loads fine and I am able to get online but I no longer have the link to Control Panel on my start menu and I cannot access it from the command line. When I try to use the run command it gives me a pop-up that says 'This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator" even thought I am logged on as the administrator account. This happens when I try to get into the control panel or access my display properties from the desktop. I have already run a full scan with McAfee and MBA-M and fixed the issues that were found but I am still having this issue. Here is a log from HJT, any help or suggestions would be greatly appriciated.

I also forgot to mention that I tried to do a system restore to resolve the issue and got an error that it could not be done with multiple restore points.

I also forgot to mention that I tried to do a system restore to resolve the issue and got an error that it could not be done with multiple restore points.

Update your MBAM via the "Update" Tab and run it again and post me the log.

REBOOT and then:

-- Download DDS by sUBs and save it to your Desktop
-- If your AV has a script blocker, please disable it
-- DoubleClick on dds.scr to run the tool

* A command box will open, displaying added information for your reading pleasure while DDS completes its scan.
* Upon completion, a Dialog Box should open instructing you to save and post the TWO resulting logs (DDS.txt & Attach.txt).

- Copy&Paste the DDS.txt into your next post.
- Please post Attach.txt as an attachment to your post - there is no need to Zip it. If you don’t know how to post an attachment, please Copy&Paste it along with the DDS.txt scanlog.

Please post the MBAM and DDS logs for me.

Cheers :)

Here is the info you needed. TIA for your help.

Here is the info you needed. TIA for your help.

Happy to help.

Nothing particularly evil jumps out at me from those logs. Just looks like a little minor registry alteration.

I'd like to take a more thorough look before posting the fix:
Please download Peek.bat to your desktop.
DoubleClick on it to run it and post me the contents of the log that pops up.

Thanks so much, that got it working again!

Do you have any idea how something like that happened or what I can do to protect myself from something like it in the future other than running AV and FW software?

I think you have to format your entire computer system & re-install it properly to overcome that problem.

More often than not, this is due to malware. I have seen a lot of compys issued by schools and businesses restrict this sort of access as well.
Some solid "real time" protection such as WinPatrol would be a good preventive measure.
There are other tools, but WinPatrol and SpywareBlaster are the ones I would recommend.

Errr . . . . NO.
What is the point of posting something like that?
