Windows 7 home premium, all patches applied. with Norton Internet Security.

I removed the Virus with Combofix and double checked with Housecall.trendmicro.com

I have found that when I attempt to change the

" Change User Account Control Settings " in the User Accounts in Control panel

I get a blank window that pops up then closes....

How can I fix this so I can have a choice to turn it on and off.

Change settings directly on the registry. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc232771.aspx for further details.

I support the 2nd-profile-idea, you should enable and use the account "administrator" for that. If that does not help, you might reset the OS security settings by doing a repair installation (called in place upgrade) by inserting the windows 8 DVD into your running windows and selecting "upgrade".
