I have the same problem with windowsrestore, I have tried to follow procedures and my system (windows xp home edition) will shutdown when I try to run RKill in normal mode I tried it in safe mode also and it will start and tell me access denied, I have tried to load Malwarebytes from a thumb drive and it will also say access denied and will not set it up. I have been able to install Ccleaner and it will run and cleans 21 items from the registry but they will come back when I reboot. I can get it on line but only in safe mode with networking.

Hi Geprge, I split you to your own topic.. It's always better.

Some types of malware will disable MBAM (MalwareBytes) and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it.

Before saving any of your security programs, rename them first. For example, before you save Malwarebytes', rename it to something like MBblah.exe and then click on Save and save it to your desktop. Same thing after you install it. Before running it, rename the main executable file first
Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..
