Hey all.

Been recently trying to fix a friend's laptop. Keep running into an error saying something along the lines of "This application cannot be executed. The file ****.exe is infected. Run anti-virus software now?"

I am also constantly getting a popup for something called "Anti-Virus Soft", which will not go away either.

I've tried the following, with no luck:

Malwarebytes - Can't update however, since I can only run in safe mode.

What else can I do? Any help is appreciated.
