Well, the problem at hand is a pretty severe malware infecting this Compaq Presario CQ57.
I scanned the HDD from the outside with my adapter with both MSE and MB and they both detected malware (5 trojans). It was a pretty sophisticated code trying to get passed as a windows defender or something like that. They were all 'successfuly removed' according to MSE and MB, however, my problem is that when I attempt to open a folder in c: drive I get this; "c:\documents and settings is not accessible. Access is denied" The current user is admin. It will not allow me to access the task manager either to view the processes.
Should I try ComboFix? I know it's risky but I've tried a couple of times.
Any ideas before I format and reinstall the whole OS(Windows 7)?
Edit: I uninstalled Norton and installed MSE however, nothing happens when I attempt to execute MSE.
