Windows 7: Any idea how she did this or to fix it.

15 Mar 2011   #1

Win 7 pro 64 bit
Any idea how she did this or to fix it.

I'm attempting to fix my sister's computer (not easy being 150 miles away). Some how she seams to have changed her administrative account to a guest account, or so she claims. With our hectic schedules we've only been able to do e-mail tag on the problem but I don't even know how that's possible. I asked to confirm it's not a standard account and she insists it's shows a guest account with her name.

I believe she's running win 7 home 64 bit. Part of my confusion may be my only win 7 system is Pro.

I hope to get more information, maybe even a remote assistance into it this weekend but but I wanted to put it out there and see if this sound familiar to anybody so I can hopefully go in with some ideas what she did, how she did it, and how to fix it.

She really needs to get help from a Malware forum. Here are two excellent forums.
Virus, Spyware & Malware Removal - What the Tech

She needs to only choose one, because they will only help on one, not both.
Just register and post the problem.

Hi and welcome to SF!!! :)
I think Jacee has been based on the reduction of privileges. Remove from your sister Administrator privileges is quite interesting to an attacker, not you agree?! Follow Jacee's guidelines and goals and let us know the results.

No idea what this is
I didn't know what to say about it but it's been happening for a few weeks now. Randomly and sometimes when explorer restarts. Could someone explain it to me? There are like two extra windows that do nothing and it doesn't just happen with this one program but almost all that are open at the time.

Win 7 idea
Not sure how, or who I can purpose this idea too, but I find that I copy and paste a select amount of words all the time at work. I think it would be nice if I hovered over paste, after I right click, and it gave me a history of previous clipboard items to paste. Anyone else think this is a good...
