My Moms laptop has some serious problems. It started around the 21 she showed me she had one of the fake anti virus popups(Internet Security 2010 or 2011). I tried to remove and thought I got it in time but I couldnt run malwarebytes. Now I can not run any type of scanner. Malwarebytes, adaware,and superantispyware start to run then just stop without any errors. then I get the following message when I try to rerun them: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item." And avg 2011 cannot scan because there are no active components shown in the program.
Any help would be appreciated.
