I have the same issue as this:
The windows 7 computer it straight away logs out when trying to log in (doesn't even get to the desktop on this computer unlike this person's description).
However, I think it is not because of a corrupted User Profile but rather a virus. The reason I think this is, it still allows me to load the computer on profile 'Scott' and any new profiles I create. But a background process is limiting startup of other programs. So for example Norton antivirus software cannot be booted.
I've done some investigation and found out that on startup the following is loading: Program - EgrNhwnl from C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\vaaxwweu\egrnhwnl.exe
Pretty sure it's a virus as it looks like a randomly generated string of characters to deter me from searching what virus it is :(
I've tried removing it from start up by disabling and deleting, but it instantly reappears. I've tried doing this in safe mode as well. I've also tried deleting the file from AppData but it doesn't allow me to do this either.
So my question is: Any ideas for the next move in trying to combat this? Any ideas what virus this might be? (as this will help find a remedy)
Thanks for your help
