    Hello all,
    Last night my computer was infected with the malware "System Error Fixer", which completely ravaged my computer. I downloaded SuperAntiSpyware, which pretty much completely got rid of the virus, but it left behind some problems which I do not know how to fix. I've taken some screenshots to better show you the problems.
    This is what happens when I try to go to the display control panel. I don't know how to let my computer allow me to go to this window.
    This picture shows what is permanently displayed by the clock in the lower left hand corner of the screen. How do I get rid of it?
    This shows what happens when I go to my computer. My C: Drive is no longer displayed, even though everything on my hard drive is still there. How do I get the icon for the C: Drive back?
    This shows what happens when I click on the start menu. The all programs tab has disappeared, as well as the "log-off" button. How do I get these back?

    Also when I press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, a window similar to the first picture pops up saying that the administrator has disallowed this.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
