Good evening,

From what I have read of its description I believe I have been infected with AntiSpy Protector 2009. I noticed that my pc was directed to a site that McAfee said was infected. I noticed the typical red shield in the lower right corner saying my computer was infected so I shut down immediately and attempted to run Malwarebytes. It shutdown seconds after being started. I also attempted to run other apps and had the same problem.

My computer would only boot into safe mode initially but it just came back up into windows but still will not run any of the antimalware apps.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
