I got a hijacker and was able to (after some effort) get Avira on my Chrome browser. Adblocker has reported error but I haven't seen unusual ads or sent to unwanted pages since then.
I can install Malwarebytes but it will not open to scan for anything. It says "The requested resource is in use". Same message when I try to install combofix. Malwarebytes does not show up in the task manager. One thing I did notice in the task manager (which won't close) is several instances of winvmx client.
I have gone into regedit and gotten rid of some things related to "svcvmx" and what that got me was Avira on my browser.
I haven't been able to reboot in safe mode. I have windows 10.
svcvmx is found in my program files and in startup. I can't get rid of any of it. The computer makes excuses.
What can I do?
