Hello,

I have a Toshiba Laptop, Windows Vista Ultimate SP2, 32-Bit OS...

I am able to open files and programs not associated with the internet or spyware removal...

I am unable to open internet explorer or any anti-virus applications...

When re-installing anti-virus software, it closes during scanning and unable to open again.

I receive the following messages when connected to the internet and trying to open a program:

"Windows Security Alert
To help protect your computer, Windows Firewall has blocked some features of this program.
Do you want to keep blocking this program?"

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

I have tried to run Malwarebytes but it closes during scanning and unable to open again without reinstalling.

All versions of RKill has not been able to run...

SUPERAntiSpyware Portable also closes during scanning even when opened from a usb drive.

FixReg.reg is unable to edit the registry

I would greatly appreciate any help...

Thank you,

Manevs1

Can you try using Safe Mode with Networking to download Malwarebytes and Super Anti-spyware?

To enter safe mode hit F8 just after the BIOS Post Screen or the Splash logo for your lap top.

I can boot into Safe Mode with Networking, I install Malwarebytes from a usb drive and able to update it. When scanning the virus closes.

So when scanning Malwarebytes closes?

Try using rkill then shortly after run Malwarebytes.

When I run rkill from desktop, the virus blocks it and I can't access the file. When I run it from the usb drive it blocks it no matter how much times I open it.
