Re: Conflicting User profiles when using Internet...
This is because the other user must have been the administrator. Administrative user can control the settings of other user. He must give permission to the other user which is given by default. But if its not, then options will be very limited to the other user. Access to surf the net and other access options can be given through the administrator.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hi, it sounds like your antivirus has not had time to update the latest definitions, and you have more than three Trogens causing problems. Because your PC is so new I would take it back, for them to solve the problem, get your antivirus updated. This should be free; but I must say you have been very unlucky
I agree. Re imaging or reinstalling the windows operating system seems like the only fix at this point since it seems like the anti virus isn't picking up the virus. Back up the files on an external hard drive and just reinstall windows.
