Download and run spybot search and destroy and adaware free. Make sure you update each of the programs definitions before scanning. After you have removed the program you can download and install windows defender which is supposed and protect against spyware. Another thing i do is use firefox for web browsing as i feel its a safer way to browse.

Try downloading and running Spyware Terminator and Spybot Search & Destroy. Both can be downloaded from PC World for free. Be sure to update each program before you scan. If you want to try an online scan, try Trend Micro Housecall, which is free..

To change the face from bad to beautiful a Plastic Surgeon is needed. Engineers cannot help you in such matters. A face from bad to beautiful can be made on PC desktop using photo editing softwares. Physical changes cannot be made on PC.

try uninstalling your printer from both user accounts then make sure that when you reinstall your printer that you and your wife use the same port for the printer instead of having the printer switch from one port to another every time you or your wife uses the printer to avoid having the computer from detecting the printer in a different port each time it is used in a different account ^_^

You need to read each picture into one of the picture editing programs like Adobe Photoshop, or Corel PhotoPaint and then export them in the desired format.

Investigate what photo editing software might be on your machine.

Winplayer.exe and autorun.inf virus

you probably have the virus on your registry and that is a tough one. it depends on the type of virus you have, it may not allow you to install an anti-virus, but you can give it a try. download ad-ware or malwarebytes from the internet, the free version and enable all the settings. start with the malwarebytes its good for problems like this and see if it can get the virus out.

this is not a sufficient to answer. but, you can get some idea in the following information:

if you have a plan to install AD:
  • install AD using manage your server wizard. (or)
  • install AD using DCPROMO command
After, you have to follow the AD installation instructions to store the ntds and sysvol files.

installing dns, is also need for a domain to adding clients.

after this, you can get your desired domain controller and active director users and computers information.

i think, this may be useful for you.
