Task Manager and Control Panel missing, unable to edit registry. The PC just wants to download more and more "malware fixers". I believe that it succeeded in downloading a couple of programs before I shut down internet access to the PC. It appears to have loaded the bad stuff into the c:\documents and settings\Administrator\local settings\temp folder. I tried to delete the executable called "lovtecwmq.exe" but cannot. I tried to google this program with no luck. In any case, here is the Hijack log:
