I was having a stupid issue with a spyware when using the search area in Firefox redirecting me to a different site and running Spyware doctor, Kaspersky, Spybot and Super Antispyware did not help so I decided to try running them in safe mode and started with Adware. Bad move...it said if found something and needed to restart, after the restart programs won't start anymore. If I tried to uninstall them it says it there is a problem like maybe it has been uninstalled already and offers me to remove the key which I did not do of course.
I have tried to rename some apps to .com or .pif to run them but they wont start.
It seems the only program that starts is Sonar 8...go figure...everything else just nothing...no processes show for any program when I try to run them.
Never seen this before.
Any suggestions?

If it was my computer I would use these two programs.



Update them and run in normal mode.
Next run sfc /scannow
You might have to run th sfc /scannow first.
