Hi,
I picked up some malware yesterday. PSGuard has hijacked my desktop. I can't get into my IE browser's Tools>Internet Options. I get this alert.

"This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator."

Anybody know where to start.

I'm running several virus scans not but the PSGuard isn't getting removed, the desktop is still displaying the PSGuard warning and I can't get into the IE browser Options.

Thanks.
NewtonLoops

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
