Windows 7: Oh, no! I can't save my files!

10 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 32-bit
Oh, no! I can't save my files!

Hello everybody. :/

Damn, that virus PDM.RootShell is making to be tired. It gave me a couple of problems. I got one of them already fixed. Okay, here's an info about it...

After a virus, I had some problems (one of them is fixed). I trying to save files, but in some softwares, they just won't let me save it, because of ADMIN RIGHTS??? Hey! I'm already an admin and I can do everything! Here's the table, which shows when I try to save .jpg picture, which I made in Paint:

Table shows:
Save As
You don't have any permission to write your data in this place.
If you want to get rights, please contact with administrator.

Or you want to write this file in "My Pictures"?
Mmm... But I can save files in Desktop or My Documents. Something strange.

Oh! Strange problem again! I'm trying to create Google Sketchup model and save it and i can, but when i going to that location, where is saved it, I can't find that file. Then, I'm trying to do this again and I see it, BUT with LOCK ICON?

AND. Then I trying to move my files to disk C (Without My Docs and Desktop), I can't, but actually can. lol I tried to move files and I saw this table:

The table says:

The reach to this place was denied.

Moving files to this folder, will need admin rights:


I clicked Contiune and everything went okay...

So how i can fix it? Any ideas? Maybe, .REG file?

Please, help me!

A lot of thanks!

Oh! I remember then i got a virus, i didn't remeber the name of that, that was a CRACK made by Silvers. That hacked my IE8 but i fixed that with Kaspersky Internet Security 2011. And i downloaded UT99 with PDM.RootShell virus, everything was went great till I turned the game off and I saw that, every action, i do, i see a black screen and after the moment, it's disapearance. When i realised that i need to clean that game and hit a scan immediately. Then, I reboot my PC. Black screen problem disapeared, but i got these problems...

I didn't write any backup before this infection. :/

Damaged programs: Internet Explorer 8 (page reset), Windows didn't let me to update Intel Graphics driver, to open Sony Vegas Pro register, some settings of game was crashed... But, now i can open it, because, i changed registration settings... YouTube - Can't open .EXE files in Windows 7 [!FIXED!]

Desktop can use:
[My User] (Location)
Administartors ([MyUser]\Administrators)

Whole permissions are there, just not special. The marks are hidden.

C disk can use:
Authenticated Users
Users ([My User]\Users)
Administrators ([My User]\Administrators)

"Authenticated users" don't have any permisions, "Users" don't have "Modify" and "Write" permissions. The marks aren't hidden.
