Hi Nibbles337 and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

I have tried to run AVG scan and malwarebytes scans but the virus is blocking my attemps to run any program.

it seems as though it's blocking any .exe files from running.
This is becoming fairly common now.

Let's see if this will work:

Please note these programs must be downloaded to the Desktop.

Downloads
  • Download OTL to your desktop.
    if you have problems, try this download link:
    OTL
    right click on the link and select 'Save Link/Target As'.
  • Download OTH to your desktop.
right click on the link and select 'Save Link/Traget As'.

Run Programs
  • Click on the OTH icon to run the program.

    Posted Image
  • Click on the Posted Image button.
    Your Desktop will go blank.
  • Now click on the Posted Image button.

    Posted Image
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Now click on the Posted Image button.
When the scan has completed, click on the Posted Image button.
This will load your browser so that you can copy/paste the OTL.txt and Extra.txt reports in your next reply.

If you prefer to use FireFox, click on 'Start Misc Program' and select FireFox.

Once posted:
Click on the Posted Image button to restart your computer.

If you managed to get MBAM to run, please let me have the report.

Thanks
