ok so this may not only be the only option, but i really wanted to let people know about the winbluesoft virus. I had it the other day, and if you have it too you know that it blocks just about any anti-malware/virus software as well as many others.

The virus disguises itself as an anti-virus software that prompts you to click on it in order to rid yourself of what is invading your computer. do not click on it. i'm not sure what that will do but it looks exactly like windows security center. its not, don't be fooled.

you may also get a weird wallpaper on your desktop saying that you must get rid of the spyware because it may ruin your life.

I couldn't scan my computer for the virus; it blocks all important programs and you can't remove it manually, because it says there is a internal memory error.

so what i did was i put my computer in safe mode, and i tried to scan it. i have MALWAREBYTES, and its pretty good so it found 8 infected objects on my computer. but, the thing is it needed to restart the computer to get rid of it so that did no good beause the computer restarts normally without safe mode and the virus therefore blocked the removal of the files. it wouldn't let any program run, as i mentioned previously. even during start up.

then, i tired to put my computer in safe mode again, and then i did a system restore to two days before i had dowloaded the files. it worked like a charm. i even scanned my computer again to see if there is something left, and it was completely clean. so what i suggest is put your computer in safemode and then do a system restore. it worked for me.
