Let me know if you are able to do any of the below or if still have the minimizing problem in all cases. It may be necessary to rename any installation programs and the executive programs before you try running them.
First I want to tell you, that the first link you posted gives a phishing warning and no log. I didn't click on the second one. What was it supposed to be?
Can you use Internet Explorer or Opera rather than Firefox? If another browser works, can you get BitDefender Online Scan
online scan to work? If so, have it fix whatever it finds. It would also be helpful if you can save the information on the actual names of files it finds.
Have you tried doing any of the scans or installations in Safe Mode? To get to Safe Mode hit the F8 key about once a second during bootup until the list of options appear. Select Safe Mode.
For your installations, you may have to work on a different computer to download the installation files to a cd and then install them onto your computer off of the cd.
Tell me if you can get any of these onto cd and then onto your computer and if you're able to run them? Be sure if you are able to run CounterSpy, that you have it set to fix anything it finds.CCleaner TutorialCounterSpy 15 day trial version
(This is a fairly large program, but very good and worth it if you can get it to run.) Using SDFix
