    Help! I have a Windows XP computer that has been infected by the Net Control trojan and it is blocking my every move to remove it. Upon boot up I get a System Restore window notifcation that says "Remote administrator Adam1 has changed some Windows OS system files. Checking will will take several minutes. Do not turn off computer - it can lead to a crash. Current scan: C:Windows\System32\zipfldr.dll . Then it it gives a list of system files restored. They are all System32 files with names like acledit.dll, aclui.dll B57exp.cpl, etc. This happens even if I boot in Safe Mode. Once Windows starts, I usually have 2 or 3 minutes before a Network Control popup window appears with the Windows Security Center Shield Logo: Remote Login Request. Don't allow access unless you clearly understand what you are doing. Your computer received a remote login request by user Adam1 from the IP There are two buttons: Deny access or Allow access. I am unable to close the window without responding to either button. Denying access results in a message: "Error found, Cannot perform the requested operation. Your license for Network Control has expired. There is a Renew button. If I don't do anything the window times out and freezes the computer. In fact any attempt to get out of this thing freezes the computer.

    I have tried deleting registry entries following manual removal instructions I found on the internet. These reappear when I reboot. I cannot unregister the .dll files associated with Network Control. System Restore appears to be disabled by the programs. If I try to disable services in task manager it blocks access. I have also tried to run setup off a Windows XP installation disk to re-install windows, and I can't get it to run. Help!!!!
