I recently got infected with Malware Defense. I went to the following link:

Followed the instructions, and it did stop all of the popups.

Unfortunately, I cannot install any antivirus or run antimalware software. I double click the icons but nothing comes up. Also, my internet explorer window will randomly close for no reason. I ran DrWeb CureIt in safe mode but it didn't identify or fix anything.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks for your time

Okay, as I follow-up, I followed removal instructions again and ran Malwarebyte's Anti Malware. It had 5 objects infected. Upon restart my computer locked up when I clicked run for the MBAM prompt. Here is the log:
