Hi Guys, Multiple Problems Due to Rootkit!

Hi... I recently scanned my PC with AVG to find several Rootkits so had them all removed and Rebooted the PC, when the PC comes back on, My theme is stuck on Windows classic and i am unable to change it, Also, my task bar says my my sound is disabled.. but it works? :S

I was trying to solve the problem of my moniter randomly turning its self off, now i think that is resolved, and this is now my new problem

Any help very Appreciated.

Press the windows key + r you should see a run box
in run type in services.msc and press OK
Once services is open find "Themes"
Once you find themes right click themes and click properties
You should see startup type Change it to automatic
Also where it says Service status press start

Let me know if that works

Sounds like to me you still have an active rootkit, malware, spyware running on your system. Reboot and get into safemode with networking, while in safemode with netwroking run malwarebytes and Tdsskiller making sure to run full scans. In safemode with networking this will allow you to access the internet and download software you don't have and update definitions on those that you do have.
