I have spent the last couple of days disinfecting my son's laptop with various spyware, adware, antivirus, anti-rootkit programs and now believe that it is clean. My problem is that the 'Run As' window keeps popping up now every time I click on a program. I have tried disabling the secondary logon service but the window still appears. How can I stop it.
There are two administer accounts only, one default and the other created at XP Pro setup.

Windows update doesn't work either (0x800A0046), tried all the documented fixes to no avail. I am beginning to think the security policies for the the admin accounts has been compromised during infection.

TheAdmin as been created by Windows update, I just deleted it on mine. You could try running from run box SFC /SCANNOW
