It appears my Security Center has been taken over. I think it was done via remote access. I do not use remote access and Im a stickler about this and have on many occasions checked to assure this option was off. First off I use Hiren's Boot mit as well come out early and im aware of the bad taste it may leave in your mouth. With that being said it started too happen a few months back while using windows media player. My computer began acting slow and then Explorer was constantly crashing especily when trying to access the my documents tab. Ive been running in safe mode since then. I made an ISO backup becuase Ive been so worried of losing my media. I just stepped on th divorce team and tryin to save my marriage, well the good media of it anyways. Also my restore points system has been disabed. Ive used pretty much ran every program and removed well over 100 supposed virus's as well as ran the uninstallers. Now my computer "appears" to run good until I attempt to tinker with it. (the gut feeling someone is it.) Ive noticed I cannot recieve any windows updates and now my Security Center states that its off as well as my firewall being disabled. I went into sys32 and all users except "Trusted installer" only have authourity to read. Im not sure if thats correct or not. Anyways your help would be great. I downloaded the full version of Panda Global security and it worked for a few minutes. this also killed Malewarebytes, Kaspersky, Suprantispywhere, Bit, AVG, AVIS, etc.

I have internet access but only until I attempt to download certain files at which time it redircts and does not allow it. I can access microsoft until I search my problem and it blocks it (address bar briefly says blocked) redirects me to what i presume is a fake microsoft page. It was extremly hard to download the uninstaller for malwarebytes. I used combofix and I was hesitent in doing so. Problem was when I did it a security antivirus that I uninstalled was silently running and I think I lost some important media/data. Shoud have paid attention to the "DO NOT USE LABELS POSTED EVERYWERE
