While attempting to install counterspy on a friends computer I got the message that says the system administrator has set policies that prevent this installation.I also tried malwarebytes and it refused to install.I'm logged in as the administrator.I also attempted to do a scan with AVG and it disabled itself.I tried an online scan at Trend Micro but I could not reach the website.The browser redirected me to some strange search engine.How should I go about stomping this thing out.
