    I can't find the control panel. When I try I get a message..."you must be logged on as administrator". Please help!
    Thank you!

    Welcome to TSG :)

    You probably have malware on your computer, that usually doesn't happen unless you do.

    Download the enclosed folder. It contains a program written by Rathat, and it is a policy Controller. Save and extract this program to the desktop. Once extracted, click on the RatsCheddar.exe file. Enable everything then click on Exit.

    Warning: This program was developed for Windows XP ONLY. Do not run this program in any other Operating System.


    Download TrendMicro Hijackthis from Here to your Desktop.
    • Double-Click on HJTInstall.exe
    • Follow the prompts and allow it to create TrendMicro folder in Program Files.
    • Check Create Desktop Icon.
    • On your Desktop, Double-Click on Hijackthis.exe.
    • Click on Do A System Scan and Save a Log File.
    • In your next reply, copy and paste the Hijackthis log.
