This morning when I opened my computer, I found many items with a blue shortcut arrow and a message similar to the following. "C:\Users\Robert\Local Settings is not accessible. Access is denied." To my knowledge, I haven't changed any settings. The user in most cases is "Everyone". Although a few (e.g. My Pictures) has "System" as the user. The only thing I did of any consequence was run the Geekstogo "Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide" program which I don't believe would have caused the problem. I am also being denied accesss to "Documents and Settings" and System Volume Infomation" My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I have run MBAM, SAS, Avast, Vipre, and Norton virus. Using msconfig, I disabled the start up services (except MS)to get a clean boot environment. The problems still persisted. Note, I did not have two virus programs running on at the same time in any of the above instances.

Go back to malware forum, start new topic and state your issue.
Post all logs from any antimalware tool, you ran.

I'll do it, but the reason I didn't post any malware logs was because none of
them showed any malware. Only the Norton Virus scan showed some low level
