I believe it is a virus. Run a scan with Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware and see if it can be removed by them.

The infection is causing that. Try changing the name of the Malwarebytes exe file in the folder you installed it in to anything else and then try running it.

How about SuperAntispyware, will that run? If it does not, just double click on runsas.exe in the folder you installed that program to. If it creates another file, then double click the file it creates. The runsas.exe either just runs the program or creates another file name for the program so it will run, I cannot remember for sure which
