I tried installing and running Malwarebytes, and the program is killed before it can begin its scan.

Malwarebytes now won't open.

the alert reads:

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

the infection has disabled McAfee as well.

The alert reads: 'The item you selected is unavailable. It might have been moved, renamed, or removed. Do you want to remove it from the list?'
