Windows 7: No Color Scheme in Control Panel

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Run System File Checker and let it fix any corrupted files. Run it 3 times so it fixed all errors if any.
I have called in a malware expert to check out that tool bar and spy ware.

Running this tool usually has good results: AdwCleaner Download

If you personalized your browsers homepage, you will have to check and reset it if AdwCleaner mentions anything relating to browsers after a scan and cleaning.

HotBar is a real PITA - and can act as gateway for real malware.
Best removed!

In addition to another Malwarebytes full scan, I'd run SUPERAntiSpyware which roots this kind of malware out of the registry and browser. Make sure in Browser Add-ons it is already disabled.

Also turn off SAS at Startup and Auto Updater to keep it from running with Win7 unless you buy the rt protection. Now is also a good time to establish a clean boot and other steps to Clean Up Factory Bloatware.

Sorry again, I was totally unware of this to be illegal. I personally own one 32 bit Windows 7 ultimate and one 64 bit Windows 7 professional. I never had the need to do such modifications, so I was totally unaware.

Thanks for understanding.

Thanks for the advise, I'll try deleting the Adware. But, what about "letting me open the color scheme window", nobody got an idea yet?

Please verify these two steps:

1.) Did you finish with MBAM, and allow it to clean what it found, and do a restart?

2.) Did you run the AdwCleaner, and allow it to clean what it found, and do a restart?

If no to either, verify!


If yes, then,

Type/copy/paste change the color scheme into the Start Orb Search Box.

Do you see anything similar to what is in the red box?

If you do. Click on it, and you should go to what Indianatone shows in 1st snip in post #5.

I did for the both, but for the rest - I can't. Why? I am running Windows 7 Home Basic, and it seems to me your showing another version of Windows 7. I did try to run it the way I should in Home Basic but again it won't.
