I'm having an issue with my Windows XP 64-bit OS, but it won't allow me to load any cleaning software now. I did have some malware/spyware issues but according to SAS, MBAM, and Spybot they are all cleaned now. I tried to load the new version of Avast, AVG, CCleaner, etc. and it tries to save as a binary file (only option). Then when I go to run the .exe I get the message "*.exe is not a valid win32 application". All of the tools I'm trying to run are designed to work with Windows XP 64-bit so something tells me there is something else going on here.

So does anyone have any other ideas? When I do try to scan the downloads with Avast the process begins, but nothing happens. Could there be something deeper in my system that is preventing me from doing this? Right now I'm running the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool from my account.

BTW I did run SAS, MBAM and Spybot from Safe Mode as well so I think I've got a pretty good clean. HELP!!!!!!

EDIT: Moved from XP to Am I Infected forum ~ Hamluis.
