Recently a virus managed to get onto my computer.
My anti virus detected and stoped it, but not before it did some damage.
I quickly deleted the virus, which may not have been the best move, since I now don't know which virus it was.
While I believe I've gotten rid of the virus and all scans have come up clean, I'm now having problems with my user account.
Firstly a number of programs which are supposed to auto start up when I log on now don't. Most importantly my Anti virus program. Though it starts up fine when I use the icon. The only exception to this is Steam.
Secondly task manager no longer wants to switch to administrator mode.
When I press "Show proccess from all users" nothing happens.
However when I launch task manager from the start menu as administrator it works just fine.
Thirdly I get numerous programs being blocked by internet security options.
these only seem to occur when a program is indirectly launched. E.g ARM.exe when I run adope acrobat reader, or the windows firewall advanced settings when launced from control panel (it works fine when I open it through explorer).
When investicating this I found that internet properties/ security has 5 Zones.
Internet, Local intranet,Trusted sites,Restricted And My computer.
however My computer has an odd icon with a key symbol, and shows nothing when I click on it.
My System Restores before the virus have been completly corrrupted, and I reallly don't want to have to reinstall everything so if any one could help me fix this damage, I would appreciate it.
