    Here's a good free online virus scan

    http://housecall.trendmicro.com

    Just click on free online scan - click yes on the security popup

    Select scan

    It will show you which virus u have, it u do have one and will try to clean it.

    Are you logged on as administrator,or as a user with administrative access,there is a difference.
    Have you tried safemode?

    You could try this:
    start/run,type "gpedit" without quotes,click the + for user configuration,then Administrative templates, then control panel.Look around and make sure everything is set "not configured"
