    I recently removed malware from my computer, but I think some of the damage that it did still remains. From time to time my downloads and such will fail to save to my computer, saying that I need Administrative privileges to do that or something like that. It shows up very often when I have iTunes open (as iTunes saves my library regularly.) At first it didn't bother me, but it's getting rather annoying. I'm sure it has something to do with the registry but I don't know what to do. If anyone could help that'd be nice.

    Dear Razorcane,
    Do you have the log files of the "removed malware"? Recently we discussed about one member removing >250 "infections" which turned out be 3rd party cookies(just kidding!). i am absolutely serious here! Did they infect the REGISTRY? What anti-malware,spyware tools did you use? which AV is on your system? These may help my more knowledgeable friends here to help you out! BEST WISHES!:rolleyes:

    I use ESET NOD32 for my AV and I have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I was told to use DDS and OTS to fix the problem, and I removed the malware, but I deleted the logs.
