1)So, I just came home and it seems like I somehow got a virus. It made a fake anti virus which showed a fake log, but I couldn't x out of it because it wouldn't let me open task manager and control panel and it started to hide all the files. Then it took away my administrator and wouldnt let me delete it. It also kept making me reboot until i got into safe mode.So, its NOT deleteable,I had to take away it's privilege, and now it is hiding somewhere on my computer. I know I didn't get rid of it and thats why I need your help.
2)After all of this, my computer is unable to open .exe files, so could you guys please help me with that too. I get the quote "windows cannot access the specified device path or file"

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
