Windows 7: Can't download files (Virus Scan Failed) & No admin rights?

Can't download files (Virus Scan Failed) & No admin rights?

Hello!

I've had this problem for a couple of weeks now -

EDIT: Problem is back (not having admin acess, the downloads are still working as always, need more help >.<)

I can't download any files using Google Chrome or Internet Explorer, however I found that using Firefox allowed me to download files, fairly unsure why. This is kindof sucky as I can't even install plugins for Chrome anymore. Regardless, that's not my main issue, however;

My major issue that i've been troubled by for more than a few weeks, several months in fact. I can't remove certain shortcuts, run certain programs or install certain files that without exception requires an Admin. I've browsed the interwebs for quite some time trying to figure out how to solve this, and there are some obvious things that I alredy tried. I even went ahead and enabled the 'original/hidden' Admin account, and logged onto it. Even on this account, I wasn't able to run the files, and the error message persists.

I also read some stuff about a Rootkit called ZeroAccess, and ran some programs recommended for users with this Rootkit, however, as you might have guessed alredy, it didn't help.

Any help is appriciated.

I ran the following programs;

MBAM
AdwCleaner
ComboFix
RogueKiller
Mcafee's Rootkit Removal Tool

.. And a couple of others, not sure about the names though. Neither of them found / solved anything.

Download DDS from one of these links:
DDS.com
DDS.pif
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <--- will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post.
The scan will instruct you to post Attach.txt as an attachment.

Attatched both files.

P.S. - My issue with being unable to download anything mystically dissapeared. Just the loss of access left.

Tell me why you use BitTorrent

Doubleclick CKScanner.exe and click Search For Files.
After a very short time, when the cursor hourglass disappears, click Save List To File.
A message box will verify the file saved.
Double-click the CKFiles.txt icon on your desktop and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.

BitTorrent is for, er, downloading stuff - however, didn't use it in ages so I uninstalled it.

Took a while indeed, found a ton of threats though and removed them. However, it didn't solve the issue.

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
