Came across that same annoying fake virus scanner thing that blocks all apps about 5 seconds after start-up right...
I used CCleaner in the startup folder, and it ran when I restarted.
That went fine. Then I put the malwarebytes install file in startup and it was blocked not by that fake AV thing, but windows defender. It allowed me to see the blocked startup programs, and it was in there, I clicked allow and it installed.
Next reboot I put the actual Malwarebytes icon in startup, and this time it won't let me cuz of stupid windows defender. I tried everything I can to disable that win def, and the one time I think I was quick enough to load it, it failed with some time of visual basic error or maybe it was a run time error...
I've since tried malwarebytes and ran as admin since it's vista, but it's not quick enough before that stuff blocks it.
I've never used Vista before but I already hate it. When I try to run ANY app, some stupid thing asking me to confirm pops up, and I have to click it every time just to load anything. This went on for about a dozen reboots and failed attempts. Finally I surrenderd and got the hijackthis to run and here is the log. Thanks in advance.
