May be a virus hiding somewhere, preventing me from updating Malwarebytes

Okay so I think it started when I tried to download Itunes, and the exe was bundled with stuff(possibly viruses). I got infected with some kind of red.exe virus and some other one called file_to_run(and a bunch of numbers).exe. I had AVG antivirus but every time it said it cleaned it the viruses popped back up. So I unintsalled AVG and installed Avast and Comodo firewall. I use Super antispyrware, and it keeps getting adware, but doesn't find anything else. Finally Avast recommended a scan before Windows boots up and supposedly it got Red.exe and the file_to_run virus. But every since then, I cant run or update Malwarebytes. I booted in safemode and let Malwarebytes do its thing and it found 300 things(priv.dog) but I still can not get it to update. It closes and has it has stopped working. I tried to fixes myself awhile back using different trojan removers and stuff but nothing finds anything. I think something may still be infecting the computer and would appreciate any help as I have racked my brain on this and spent a lot of time trying to fix it.


Edit: forgot to mention I am using Windows 7

Avast! free(now)

Comodo Free Firewall


Thank you in advance
