I am running Windows XP Professional SP3. Today my PC was hit with Antivirus 2010 malware. I have tried everything and can not get rid of all of it. I will post what I have tried to do.

Uninstall from add/remove programs.
Tried to run Malwarebytes. The program will run for a few seconds then close.
Tried to run SuperAntiSpyware Portable Scanner. It runs until it gets to the files and then it closes.
Tried to run Avast Antivirus. The program will not start a scan.
Ran rkill and exehelper and then tried both of the above again. Same result.
Tried Windows Live One Care online scanner. It ran for a few minutes then IE closed.
Ran VIPRERescue and then tried the above steps and still nothing.
Also get errors such as "Windows cannot access the specified device path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item" when trying to run Malwarebytes after initial run. Have tried running Inherit.exe to help with this and once again MBAM will close after a few seconds.

Have also tried doing all of the above in Safe mode, same result. Have also tried a system restore and get the message that "Your system cannot be restored."

I am at my wit's ened, please HELP!!!!
