This is my first post and I will appreciate any help in solving the following error message "specified module cannot be found." I clicked on an ad earlier that started opening mutliple browser pages on firefox. I tried to kill it using task manager however it has now stopped some of the system processes. I have a HP desktop, Windows 7 Home Premium service pack 1, processor- Intel R Cose TM i5 , 64 bit
When I try to access Malware removal programs such as Malwarebytes in normal mode, I constantly get the following error messages
"c:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anit- Malware\mbam.exe" The specified module cannot be found.
Same thing happens when I try to access cmd command, run as administrator- error message - c:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe The specified module cannot be found.
I am also not able to access any microsoft system settings such as device manager, system protection, etc..
I am also not able to system restore under normal mode- error message is " c:\Windows\system32\rstrui.exe The specified module could not be found'
I rebooted in safe mode with networking and I can access the above programs in safe mode however when I run scans, no maware is detected.
I am not sure of what I can do other than a clean restore at this point. I will greatly appreciate any help.
I have completed scans under the safe mode and have logs from Malwarebyte scans, TDSSkiller, hitmanpro, minitoolbox and can post if it helps.
Thank you in advance,
