    Default problem opening programs and potential rootkit

    I have become unable to open programs on my computer, including system programs (control panel, system manager etc.) I can still use safe mode however. I have tried restoring to a point more then a week back and I still experience the same problem.
    After running MS security essentials, Malware antibytes, and Spybot S&D the only error I have found is a rootkit called physicaldrive0, this appears in a quick scan but does not appear in a deep scan, so a false positive(?)
    I am really lost and could use some help.

    Due to inactivity, this thread will now be closed.

    If it has been three days or more since your last post, and the helper assisting you posted a response to that post to which you did not reply, your topic will not be reopened. At that point, if you still require help, please start a new topic and include a new DDS log with a link to your previous thread. Please do not add any logs that might have been requested in the closed topic, you would be starting fresh.
