Anyway, I have a pretty annoying, and seemingly impossible to remove, problem. Whenever I try to run Malwarebytes, RootRepeal, Spybot S&D, or any other malware/rootkit removal tool, the program will shut down. Immediately afterward, when I try to restart the programs I get the whole "Windows cannot access the specified file...you do not have permission to access the file" error message. I've tried renaming the programs and that did not work. My computer is running incredibly slow. I think I may have multiple problems, but this rootkit is preventing me from solving whatever other problems I might have by not letting me run spyware removal tools. Do you guys have any ideas?
I'm running Windows XP Home Edition.
Thanks for any help.
