I have an Identical problem... I have no clue how to fix it either. Its progressively getting worse for me. I can only run in Safe Mode now, and no internet connection on the infected computer. I'm on one of my laptops now trying to figure this out. I have done everything you guys mentioned...much like peter porker, my attempt at malwarebytes install off my flashdrive resulted in a locked/stopped installation. I've tried Kaspersky's, Spybot S&D, Ad-aware, ClamwinPortable, and a few others. I can put the installation icon on the desktop of my machine, BUT, as soon as I double-click, (or use the keypad) to select the setup.exe, the installation is cancelled. The day after I noticed something was up, I was able to run Malwarebytes... Once i realized i needed the mbam-log.... its gone. I only have 2 logs left... Last august, and last october. Unless the logs are stored somewhere else?

Another thing I will mention... Back when i first realized something was up, I tried going into the task manager, and a popup message came up, saying "task manager has been disabled by the administrator"... I AM the admin... It Never did that before. And just a little while ago, I tried to install a spyware app, and it said "The administator has disabled that function"....

I try to install adaware, and I can't because it says "Microsoft visual C++ runtime 9.0 service pack 1 could not be installed please use windows update to manually install this update on your system." well, with no internet, I put it on my flashdrive, and still NO LUCK...

Tried installing spybot s&d, and I get the error message, "Error connecting to the internet. The TCP/IP protocol is not installed properly"

As far as malwarebytes... tried reinstalling it... Progress bar gets to about 60%, and STOPS...

Any more idea/suggestions. This desktop is starting to look more and more like a boat anchor....

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
