Hi,

My laptop's running Windows XP Pro, SP-3.
The problem is that "Folder Options" and "Regedit" have been disabled which I suspect is because of some flash-drive virus.

I tried using FlashDisinfector which enables Folder Options and Regedit but only for a while. On the next reboot they're disabled again.

I just ran Malwarebytes and the log is as follows:


Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.46
www.malwarebytes.org

Database version: 4052

Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702

Any sort of help to remove this virus/trojan/malware/spyware would be much appreciated.

PS: I want to keep "Formatting the laptop" as the last resort.

Thanks.
Pri.
