Hello,

We have just cleaned a pc from viruses and malware. All is OK now except for one user profile the Antivirus won;t run. When manually trying to start it it says"This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer". Running XP SP3.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Check whether the Firewall blocked the application, and add the application in exceptions list.

It's going be a registry problem of some sort or policty restriction. It had a fake AV and possibly that has restricted AV profgrams to run.

Run these first in not already used. They scan quick
Run TdssKiller and Hitmanpro.

I am quite sure the pc is clean as we scanned it multiple times with ESET, Malwarebytes and Superantispyware, Kaspersky did not find anything and caused a BSOD.

TdssKiller sometimes causes a bsod on completion(when you hit close)
You are probably weary of trying the others that are mentioned but i recommend you try them :)
