Since I am unable to obtain any logs or run any scans, I guess I'll just list as many symptoms as I can:
-No anti-virus/spyware/malware programs will run, not even in safe mode. Some begin to scan but then crash immediately. When I try to run them again afterward I get an error message saying "I do not have appropriate permissions to access the item." I also cannot delete or rename the .exe of the program after I get that error.
-Random Internet Explorer pop ups (my default web browser is Firefox). They will randomly pop up on the desktop, even when I'm not browsing the web.
-Google search results will redirect to random sites or they may not even load. I also cannot add bookmarks.
Those are some of the main symptoms, besides the obvious ones (slower computer, slower internet, etc). If you have any ideas or suggestions to what this may be and how to remove it, they will be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
