The computer I'm currently using has some vicious stuff going on.
It's removed my System Restore option and will not let me open any PC cleaners. What can I do to restore my computer?
I've tried to repair my System Restore by altering the "group policies" but it doesn't even exist there.
Before I did that I executed RKill, then tried to run Malwarebytes and MB wouldn't even load until I uninstalled it and installed an older version (A year old).
I then ran RKill, and successfully ran the older version of Malwarebytes.
Also, (**after running RKill before each attempt of each program**) I then tried to run CCleaner to no avail of even opening the program.
Then **RKILL, and an attempt at Adwcleaner; these all installed "appropriately" and Adwcleaner actually opened, but the second I hit "run" the program would entirely close and nothing would happen afterwards.
The only thing that I've installed that seems to be working is "SUPERAntiSpyware v. 6.0.1146", the only problem with this program is I've ran it three times and each time it picks up/removes something new. Every time!
And to round it all off I can't use System Restore, which was my last resort.
And I can't run any malicious item removers, I've been at this for hours, for a noob I feel like I'm making progress, but seeing as nothing is working still I'm at a total loss.
Side note; I couldn't get Malwarebytes to run with any Chameleons either. The only things that worked were SUPERAntiSpyware, and a year old version of MBytes. And the only thing that picked up/removed anything malicious was SUPER.
