As the title says this thing has crippled my computer. As in I can't do anything. Sometimes Windows won't even open now. Or if it does, it locks up in a couple of minutes. The thing is also preventing me from opening Malwarebytes or anything like that. I literally can't think of a single way to fix it. I have Hijackthis, but I cant open it to scan anything.

Safe mode does not work. It either fails to load or crashes. Is there any way I can go and manually find the files and delete them? Assuming I can get to the folders fast enough before it goes all to hell. Another thing, opening anything takes forever.

Every once in a while I can get it to work by using the last known good configuration. About 1 out of every 9 or so times. Search and Destroy asks me to allow some files to be changed and I deny them. Then it gets to one that I cant deny, because the button isnt active. Followed by a warning message that something failed. Then come all the lovely pop ups. Ctrl Alt Del never works and it denies me any administrative powers by having that disabled. Pretty much auto closes Malwarebytes. Never actually even lets it start. I got Malware to work once and I removed some stuff. Then when I restarted like instructed the computer never wanted to work again.

Any ideas?
