OK Guys I need help with my laptop
Its a compaq presario 2500 running SP2

the problem(s) is/are that things have been dissappearing
It all starts on startup where it pretends to freeze and when i press ALT+CTRL+DEL it unfreezes but then a message saying "Task Manager Has Been Disabled By Your Administrator"

OK so i thought it was a task manager problem, so i researched and found out it can be a registry problem, so i try to access "run' from the start menu and its not there!!! So I found out that that can also be a registry problem.

So i go to C/Windows and i find regedit. So I go to the values that should be responsible for these problems and sure enough it was them. So i restore them to what they should be and problem fixed right? WRONG!

I was going to turn off the machine at that point when i go back to the start menu and "Shut Down" is not there!!! Log off was there so i logged off and logged on again and bang back from scratch. Freeze, so i ALT+CTRL+DEL it unfreezes but then a message saying "Task Manager Has Been Disabled By Your Administrator" and run is not there again and shit down still isnt there.

so thats where im at right now so help

heres other things to consider:
i looked through the symantec website and i found a similar worm so i followed the instructions on how to get rid of it. The first instruction was to turn off system restore so i cannot restore my computer now (plus the resolution it offered didnt do much!)

i AM an administrator

There is only one abnormal entry in your HJT log. Put a check in the box to the left of the entry and then click the "Fix checked" button:
O20 - Winlogon Notify: NavLogon - C:\WINDOWS\

There are definitely infections which modify the Registry and create the symptoms you describe, but becuase we have no names or other clues as to the exact identities of your "unwanted guests", we'll have to probe a bit more:

You will need to close/quit all web browser programs and disconnect from the Internet for the following, so you should print out these instructions or save them into a text file with Notepad.

* Download and install ewido Anti-spyware (30-day trial version) - http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Install and Configure ewido:

  • Close all other Applications and then run the ewido installer
  • Select language click Ok
  • Click I Agree
  • Click next
  • Click Install
  • Click Finish
  • Wait Ewido will open main screen automatically.
  • Wait again a few minutes and Ewido Should Auto update itself. If it doesn't click update at top of screen.
  • It is very important to get updates
  • When updating has finished, don't run the program, just it for now.

* Reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :

  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Log in to the Administrator account.

* Open Ewido

  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • You will be prompted to clean the first infection.
  • Select "Perform action on all infections", then proceed.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop or a location where you can find it easily.
  • Close Ewido.

* Empty your Recycle Bin and reboot normally.

* Post the log that ewido generated.

DMR I Did What You Told Me Word For Word, And This Is The Log That ewido Generated:

Hi- sorry this fell throught the cracks.

ewido obviously cleaned a couple of hiddne nasties, but I'm assuming the missing Run option, Task Manager, etc. are still problems, yes?

If so, please tell us the exact name of the worm decribed on the Symantec site. As you've discovered, many such infections make changes to certain areas of the Registry which disable potentially useful tools like Task Manager, Regedit, the Run option, etc.
I'm pretty sure that there is a Registry fix file available which resets all of the altered Registry settings that get modified by the infections, but I want to make sure we're applying the right fix for the right infection before I post that Reg file.

After Ewido Everthing Is The Same, Still Cant Run, Or Shut Down, However, I Can Access The Task Manager After Fixing It Myself In The Registry

On The Symantec Site The Worm I Was Looking Into Was Called "W32.Nopir.A" But I Figured Out That Its Not That Worm Cause No Files Are Getting Deleted (That I Know Of), And The Files That Are Supposed To Be Used B It Arent There, And Im Not Getting The Message That that Worm Gives Out

So if the reg file would work, i would really appreciate it! :cheesy:
