    My computer was recently badly infected with all sorts of viruses, and although I think that I have removed them all, their effects still linger.

    My problem is very similar to that of this poster, where I cannot access Control Panel components, such as Display, System, or User Accounts. Specifically, this error appears when attempting to open one of these:

    On some help forums rundll32 was pointed to as the cause of the problem, and indeed I found these entries in Comodo's Defense+ Log:

    (Various programs calling rundll32.exe, but it being blocked everytime)

    I have tried disabling Comodo (and closing it entirely) and it doesn't make a difference.
    What's interesting is if I boot into Safe Mode and log into the Administrator account, it works fine. I can see from this account that my main account is still an Administrator.

    Here is my HiJackThis log:

    AVG, Ad-Aware, Comodo, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, SUPERAntiSpyware, XSoftSpySE, SmitFraudFix, SmitRem, and VundoFix all say I am clean.
    Running sfc /scannow hasn't worked either. I tried giving permissions to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel with no success. SUPERAntiSpyware even has a few tools that are supposed to give back administrator permissons, but they didn't work.

    Here's part of a XSoftSpySE log:
    <DebugMsg event="REGVLAUE_DELETE_SUCCESS" data="software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\explorer\forceactivedesktopon" system-message="The operation completed successfully." malwareName=""/>
