I'm pretty sure my Toshiba laptop has been stricken with the Security Protector virus..The shortcut randomly showed up on my desktop and my computer hasn't worked right since.
Now I'm unable to open Firefox or Malwarebytes, saying that "Windows cannot access the specified device, paath or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
Anyway, I've tried to run TDSSKiller, RKill and Malwarebytes (from a flash drive) while running in Safe Mode with Networking, but none of these have resolved the issue. I even tried renaming Malwarebytes to iexplorer.exe, but that didn't work either. After installing Malwarebytes, I try performing a full scan, which lasts only a few seconds before the program closes.
I've researched the issue and I thought I could resolve the issue that way, but I haven't been so lucky so far. So thanks in advance for your support!!
