    Recently my computer has been plagued with spyware, malware, and viruses. The main
    problem is the SHDOCLC.DLL/dnserror.htm error. I have also been denied access to
    the control panel with a message that says I have to be the admin, which I am. I
    have tried running control panel commands from the command prompt, again I get the
    same message saying I don't have access and to contact the admin.
    I have located 2 spyware/malware programs: printer.exe and shell.exe. i was able
    to kill the process tree for shell.exe, and proceeded to locate and delete it. However
    when I later started up the computer it reappeared.
    When I ran Ad-Aware I came up with the trojan: win32.trojan.agent, which i believe
    ad-aware removed, although I don't know how to check this.

    I believe the virusses, spyware, etc. was downloaded through bittorrent, which mysteriously
    appeared on my computer yesterday.

    I have performed a HJT scan and can provide it if anyone needs it.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.
    Thank you very very much.
