We got one of those "Antivirus 2010" viruses in our computer and after a friend told us to run Malware Malbytes to get rid of it...well we did and now we can't do anything in our computer. Every program we click on has "access denied" and cannot find path.
What do we do!

EXACT same boat here... had Antivirus 2010... used malwarebytes anti-malware and now all desktop shortcuts have lost their associations. looks like the the system32 folder is gone on my machine as well.
ok... i went into safe mode (hold F8 on start-up, follow prompts), i did a system restore (start>all programs> accessories>system tools>system restore) to a time before the 'puter got sick with Antivirus 2010. all seems back to normal now. so, maybe that will work for you. good luck.
