Many viruses (and brontok variant) have behavior like that.
Use this antivirus to remove the virus and restore the registry that modified by that virus.

To clean and to check if you system is clean do following:

Run malwarebytes in Safe Mode with Networking and update it before running a full system scan:

Then try HitManpro to make sure anything which might be left behind is clean:
