Hello all, I'm very new here and have only browsed in the past, as I am usually pretty good at fixing these things on my own, but this one has me stumped. Several days ago my laptop started acting up. My network seemed bogged down, load times increased and fan noise started to fluctuate. Yesterday it came to a peak and I opened task manager to see a bunch of randomly named processes alternating between taking up 99%-100% CPU and 99%-100% Memory. I ended them and upon doing so my laptop sped back up and acted normal for a bit. This made me start to think I may have some sort of virus or malware on my laptop. I have just gotten this laptop recently, so I have yet to install the antivirus software I generally have on my computers, so I went online and found downloads for avast and malwarebytes to try and remove any malicious software present. Both installers downloaded perfectly but I cannot run either. I have a snapshot of the errors I get below. I have also tried avira and AVG to only receive either the same or similar messages. I have tried loading them from a USB pre-installed, I have tried safe mode, I have made sure I have security clearance for all these files and yet it still is freaking out on me. Any ideas? If you need more information please allow me to gather it for you, I really need to get this solved so I can securely start looking for another job. Thanks for any and all help!
Here are sorta the highlights of what is happening overall, except my CPU and Memory have not spiked in a bit so I did not get a capture of that, however you can see several of the oddly named processes, error messages are from double-clicking both the Mbam setup application and the Avast installer:
