I have Antivirus 2010, it disables my task manager and my internet explorer. I can't dowloand any fixes because I can't use the internet. Also I cannot find any files on my computer named Antivirus 2010. How and I disable and remove it? Do the files have a different name? That is why I can't find them? Help

Try following the guide here and since you can't connect to the internet, try downloading the installation files to a clean computer and tranferring them to the infected PC via a flash drive. Then install MBAM from your flash drive to the infected PC. After that, download the updates for MBAM from here.

After doing the above, follow the guide :thumbsup:

Oh, and one other quick thing,

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it.

  • Before saving any of your security programs, rename them first. For example, before you save Malwarebytes', rename it to something like MBblah.exe and then click on Save and save it to your desktop. Same thing after you install it. Before running it, rename the main executable file first

    Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

    If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..
  • Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.
