Ok, so I am usually very good with computers and I have just gotten rid of a virus on my sisters laptop. Though recently my computer got a virus, with Green AV, Protection System, Police Pro, Personal Guard, and it downloaded porno sites onto my computer desktop. I have managed to get rid of the porno icons on my desktop and their files that were hidden in my computer. I cannot get rid of the other problems though, they will not let me open my MalWareBytes that I downloaded, nor any other anti-virus websites or programs. I cannot open task manager, or regedits because the virus has taken over my Administrator and has blocked these from me. I have gone through my add/remove program lists and deleted the ones I could. I have also removed a file on my computer named "My websearch". I deleted protection system but every time I restart my computer it comes back.

I only know of one way to get rid of this, and that's to by an IDE USB adapter kit and take out my hard drive and connect it to a computer with MalWare Bytes and Comodo Anti-Virus. Sadly my parents think that's too much work and we should just send the computer back to my school (I'm virtual schooled) and have them "fix" it or send me a new one. If you know me, that plan won't work, 1. My school couldn't fix a broken paper clip if their life depended on it 2. I don't like to leave things unfinished, I must fix it.

I have searched the web on this computer (My dads) and have gone through many tutorials and I have even tried to download Malware Bytes onto a USB and tried putting it on my computer that way without success. I have transferred all files I needed to my Seagate extra hard drive so I am willing to try anything, it can't get much worse then it already is.

If somebody could please give my any tips on how to even start this, please, let me know!

Ok so I renamed my Malware, and it's still not opening (I don't know if it was supposed to yet but it's not) and I downloaded that file onto the computer but it won't open because the virus is telling me its "infected" and I need to run the anti-virus system.
