He had over 84 Trojan Viruses on the computer and it was in such bad shape that I thought it would have to be reformated. In Safe Mode I was
able to install AVG 8.0 and it cleaned all of the Trojan Viruses except some Malware titled "Antispyware 2010". I have read in this forum that the answer
is to use Malawarebytes. I have used this program faithfully with my computer at home and it does really a good job.
The problem I am having is that on the Dell B130 laptop whenever I install Malawarebytes it goes through setup and installation fine. It even updates the definitions. When I try to run the progam (even with quick scan) the program sits for a minute and then it just stops. It is totally knocked off the desktop. In SafeMode I get a message that I do not have proper authority to run the program. I've installed and removed this program over and over again and just can't seem to get it to work.
I would sure appreciate any ideas that one of you might have on how I can get Malawarebytes to install and/or how to get rid of this damn Antispyware 2010.
Thanks in advance for all ideas.
