I am receiving a Win32/obfuscator.er Tried removing it with Symantec and it will not respond. Tried to remove it with OneCare and same thing but now it seems to be introducing more such as Win32/obfusctor.ES, JS/Renos and a bunch of Trojan.Fakeavalert.

I tried downloading MBAM program everyone seems to be recommending but it keeps saying the program has stopped working before I even finish installing it.
Can anybody help me? THis is my school computer so I hope this can be fixed.

Thanks in advance.

If Malwarebytes won't install or run

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

MBAM uses Inno Setup instead of the Windows Installer Service to install the program. If installation fails in normal mode, try installing in Safe Mode.
