Hey, I'm new to this forum, I hope this thread is in the right spot. 4 days ago I started to realize my computer was starting to act funny.

4 days ago - internet stopped working, windows internet connections icon on taskbar toolbar diasppeared.

3 days ago - Malwarebytes Antimalware stopped opening, after I try to open it a error message comes up.

2 days ago, AVG free version randomly updated and I restarted my computer, which was obviuosly a big mistake. A little icon on the toolbar warned me that AVG was not turned on but when I opened AVG to see, it was a fake program made to look like it was running. Upon opening AVG everything (firewall, virus protection, etc) appears to be turned off but after a few seconds the fake program comes up.

I turned off my computer and haven't turned it back on since then because I do not know what to do.

Please diagnose this virus? I hope I gave enough information.


edit: I have read the thread about troubleshooting malwarebytes already, but I am not sure if I should try anything because AVG is acting up as well.
