Hello.

 

I am running Windows 7 64 bit, with an SSD (C:) and HDD (F:). After a while, I noticed I could not open 90% of the programs i have, as it came up with an error "Windows cannot find [file] make sure you typed the name in correctly then try again." When i am in Safe mode with networking, I am able to open applications. I am not sure what virus i might have, but i have ran these following virus scanners in safemode with networking

Avast

Windows Defender

Spyhunter (free)

Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool

CCleaner

 

Nothing but Conduit was found, but I saw that most of them ignored the file that said something like SYSWOW64. I am not able to scan in normal mode, as it wont let me open the virus scanners. 

Recently downloaded software:

 

Open Broadcaster Software

VLC

Teamspeak 3 

 

Thanks a lot!

Try downloading and running Malwarebytes. If that gets rid of it remember the things it finds because it could come back.

Did you download anything from a free downloading website like cnet or softsonic?
SYSWOW64 is a Trojan that can be hidden in files from those sites.
