Hi, I am not 100% sure if I am infected with a virus but I will post here anyway.
Ever since today, several programs that require administrator access will not open. Programs like MalwareBytes, Jing (A screen capture tool by Techsmith) and some video games requiring administrator access prompts me with the "Do you want to allow the following program access to your computer?" and upon clicking "Allow", nothing happens.
I am using Windows 8.1.
Steps I've taken are restarting my computer, and that's about it.
I appreciate any help I can get with my issue.
EDIT: Not all programs are affected by this, I just ran a few more administrator-required programs and they opened.

EDIT #2: I opened a program and got a BSoD just now.

 Have you made any changes shortly before this started?  You could always try System Restore to get back to a date prior to this happening.  Another option would be to run Malwarebytes and your antivirus program from Safe Mode.


Good luck.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

I just got a blue screen of death. I'll try to activate safe mode. The error had something to do with "system_scan_at_raised_irql_caught_improper_driver_unload"
