I got a virus/malware of some sort the other day after downloading what i thought was a book.. -.-
Basically, this virus/malware (not sure what it is..) prevents some antiviruse programs from running, I had Microsoft Security Essentials at first, but this got disabled and I couldnt use it so i downloaded AVG which installed fine, but wouldn't lauch, Windows Defender was also prevented from functioning.
But Antimalware bytes and Kaspersky seem to work fine and i removed several viruses/malware with them, though the problem still persists and Windows Defender/Microsoft Security Essentials still won't run!
Spybot search and destroy can scan, but when it gives me the option to remove the infections, an error occurs and says i need admin rights to do this (even though i am on an admin account..)
I would try to remove the virus through safe mode, but i cant get onto it! A message pops us saying something about the screen not being compatible or something
I was thinking of using ComboFix since it worked for me last time i had a serious virus, but im not sure i should use it since they say yo only use it with supervision from a PC pro..
Any help would be much appreciated!
Edit: Rkill didnt work, it just said "The system could not find the path specified"
