When I run a scan in Malewarebytes or Super Anti-Spyware it stops in midscan. Any attempt to reload the program after that results in this error message, "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access the file." A fresh install just allows me to repeat the process again. I have tried everything from the locked thread about this topic without success. Renaming the files, transferring renamed files over, safemode, fixexe.reg, etc, do not work. Malewarebytes scan stops after 6 seconds, but Super Anti-Spyware is able to detect a few things before it shuts down. I can pause the scan after it has detected them and then view the details about them, but any attempt to access the quarantine will stop the program. This is what it found before the scan stopped.

Trojan.Dropper/SVC Host-Fake
memory process- " " " " " (Rkill shuts this down but it keeps coming back)

Browser Hijacker.Internet Explorer Zone Hijack
This has 3 registry keys that are placed in \Software\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Esc Domains\Zedo.com

There is probably more but the scan won't run any longer. I'm not sure if these are what is denying permissions or not? How can I stop this from denying permissions to the .exe files? Should I try to delete these manually? Does anyone else have any other ideas? Thanks...
