Windows can not load the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item
I would try deleting and reinstalling malwarebytes and the same thing would happen, first it would shut down during the scan then not give me permission to access the program afterwords.
Then it got EVEN WORSE...i tried getting a clean install file for both rkill and malwarebyes from my other pc on a memory card to transfer over to my laptop when i discover...this bastard trojan has disabled my memory card reader!
So now i've tried hijack this, security task manager...you name it, no matter what program i try to open, whether i'm in safe mode with all wifi switched off or otherwise. Every program i open gets shut down then im locked out of permission to access it.
This is really driving me nuts cause the steps on this site dont seem to apply to me, i literally have nothing i can do. To make things worse this stupid laptop never let me create a windows recovery disc saying i already created one when i didn't....so i have no way to reinstall windows.
On top of this, i can't back up any of my files because somehow EVERY SINGLE FOLDER on the laptop is marked as "read only" even if i uncheck read only and hit apply, it just reverts back to read only every time.
So basically, i cant run any programs, i'm locked out of every file i try to open. Rkill doesnt seem to do anything, even in safe mode. I can't back up my files cause they are forced into read only. And i cant recover windows because the recovery disc creation tool never worked.
Should i just smash my laptop to pieces at this point?
