Following is a link to my post in the MalWare Removal forum:[/b][/color]


Additionally, I have pasted the content just in case the link does not work. Thanks for your help in advance!

Following are some of the problems that I am experiencing:
- Almost all functions run through the Start/Run command are unavailable (e.g., regedit, services)
- Task Manager is unavailable
- System restore is unavailable
- Firewall options are unavailable
- User Accounts are unavailable
- Anti-spy websites were previously blocked
- The ehRec.exe process was being used to run my CPU to 100%, but I now have that under control

Thanks in advance for any help available!
