Recently about a week ago I opened a file called a.exe.

Since then my computer has been showing serious signs of being infected.

I can't run Kaspersky because even though i installed and activated it I can't open the avp.exe file. "It says windows cannot access the specified dcevice, path, or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access this item."

I get this same message whenever i Run Hijacker MBAM or KIS. It always opens the first time but when i scan after a few seconds it closes on me. Then comes up with this message .

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access this item."

I have no idea what i can do. I've tried running in safe mode and renaming the programs but that didn't work either.

Any advice how I can remove this Virus or Malware is really appreciated.

Thanks John.
