Hi, I have recently got some sort of virus or malware from surfing a video streaming website (I think...).
- i havnt been able to run various programs, such as windows "disk cleanup". That seems to just disappear when i try to scan the C: drive but if I scan the E: drive it runs fine.
- Other programs, mainly anti virus software seem to just crash when scanning or fixing problems. Some work some don't. but the thing is, obviouslly none of them work otherwise i wouldnt still have this problem
- A few windows updates wont fully install, such as a security update and windows live update. (They successfully install but on reboot they appear ready for installation again???)
- svchost.exe could be a problem, many virus scanners have found it but never fixed. and svchost fix wizard found something wrong with "invalid data 2 at value start of the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BITS" and "system DLLs re-registration is pending". These were the erros it found but i cannot fix because it COSTS MONEY!
BAISICALLY! Nothing works, i would tell you everything I have done since this happened, but I couldnt possibly do that because i have done so much. I have been browsing these forums and alot of other forums for the answers, but I still have the same issues!!
But yeah I have tried alot of anti virus programs, AVG, kaspersky, malwarebytes etc... you name it i have probably tried it!
Although there are a few programs I have yet to use such as: combofix
a main error I get is when i install a program, use it, and then when i try to re-use it i get a similar message to: "cannot find file, path... inavlid privileges" (something like that anyway) and then the program would have to be reinstalled to try and use it again.
I'm not sure if this a virus or what???? Help please!!!
Oh and its that bad that i cant even use hijackthis, because every tiem i do it crashes then i cant open the program and get this error: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the apporpriate permissions to access the item." AND I AM AN ADMINISTRATOR as i am the only one on this computer!
thanks in advance
