I think that I may be infected with a trojan of some kind. Last night the windows sercurity center popped up on the screen and said that I did not have any antivirus software installed, but I have AVG 9.0 installed and up to date. After that I tried to run Malwarebytes, Spybot Search & Destroy, and AVG. None of which would work, I tried in Safemode, normal Startup and Diagnostic Startup. I was how able to run CCleaner but that did nothing for anything. I also tried to do a system restore but it would not allow me to do that either. It also appears to have disabled my Windows uninstaller. I am not sure what to do from here, it is not allowing me to do any of the typical scans that I would typical do. I did notice that in the Windows task manager that iexplorer.exe is always running in the background. I am able to end the process but it comes back in a few seconds. Please let me know if there is anything additional I can try.
