Everything I try to do just stops. Any spyware/malware seeking program either won't open or just closes as quickly as it opens. I've tried malwarebytes, spybot, avira. Avira will run but it doesn't bring up any suspicious files/ viruses, etc.
If a program opens once, it shuts down right away and won't reopen no matter what I do.
I can't even get hijack this to stay open- as soon as it begins to scan/ make a log for me, it closes and can't be reopened. I tried to remove the program but add/remove said it wasn't even installed- even though it was right there on my desktop along with a second shorcut icon to start it. I know I probably made it worse but I went into my program files folder and deleted it from there, then installed it again, and the same thing happened again.
I keep getting stopped and a window pops up saying "windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." This window comes up whenever I try to use any spyware search/removal program.
The icon for malwarebytes on my desltop only shows the generic white exe window icon- it won't show the proper malware icon- what does that mean?
I am ready to throw this damn computer in the trash, after smashing it!
I's like this virus knows I'm trying to find it and remove it and it 's not letting any other program get ahead of it.
