    Hi All,
    I removed winavxx from my system manually. But by some reason cannot open Control Panel and any cpl file. Getting error message "Operation has been canceled due to restrictions ..." OS - WinXpPro.
    Any suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks,
    Vladimir

    Hi !

    I recommend you use System Restore (part of Win XP) to recover your system functions and then fight what might be left from any possible threat.By default this function is ON but some people may turn it OFF . I hope it is enabled on your machine .

    Goto Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore
    Choose "Restore my computer to a previous time" . Check the calendar and choose restore point at least day before "winavxx" appeared . Follow the instructions .

    Your system will reboot and any harmful changes that have been made should be recovered .


    Then I recommend you follow these steps to check for and remove any possible malware

    In addition to scans with NOD32 , you can add scan with Spybot Search&Destroy (make sure to update it before scan and after install) ;)

    SuperAntiSpyware has a tool built in that allows you to repair restrictions activated by malware - like what you are experiencing. Im sure that would help.

    You can try the following to check for missing or damaged files within Windows:

    * From the Start menu, select Run.
    * In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
    * Select the OK button.
    * Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
    * Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.

    Failing the above I would suggest repairing Windows as described in the following link: http://www.informationweek.com/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=189400897

    Cheers :D
