I have a client's HP notebook running Windows 7 Home Premium X64 from which I have removed a variety of malware using MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware and ComboFix - all operated from Safe Mode.
Any attempt to login in standard mode produces the above error message and, while I can C.A.D. running TaskMgr produces the same reponse.
I have reset file and registry permissions using SECEDIT, SubInACL and CACLS routines as found in various on-line sources. SFC found and replaced a few problems. There is no evidence that CA AntiVirus has been installed on here, it did have Bullguard on it, which I uninstalled - apparently successfully - from Safe Mode.
Any further suggestions, other than bin it and reinstall?
