OEM Activation 2.0 Data-->

Downloaded StartupLite per recommendation and then reset SP3 Firewall per directions.

I then opened OTL, copied the lines from the codebox and pasted them in the Custom Scans/Fixes box. I then clicked on Run Fix button and let the program run. I had to click ok several times to acknowledge that system files could not be deleted. Scan took quite a while to "empty temporary files". The program then rebooted the machine and when it came back up all the icons on the desktop were gone except IE Explorer, OTL and Recycle Bin. I clicked on the Start Button and rolled mouse over All Programs and the only thing that appeared is the Startup Folder. I checked the C & D drives and all the programs appear to be there but I have nothing in the My Documents folder now and I still can't open the Recycle Bin.

I then downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to my desktop. When I tried to install and run the software I got the following error message:

Error creating registry key
Reg Create Key Ex failed; code 5
Access is denied.

* I get a similar error message when attempting to re-install my HP All-in-One printer software.
