Okay so, today after installing what I THOUGHT was a PC Optimizer, lots of I would assume, virus laden programs began installing, went to google to try to figure out how to stop it, ended up with a BSOD so had to reboot, that's when those programs began running, and also when any exe gave me the error of "The requested resource is already in use".  Surprisingly though, it let me run FRST, but any other virus program refuses to run, giving me the above error.Windows Defender was run, but according to that, I'm clean.  Help please.  Also, I don't have the funds to get my hands on a flash drive, nor do I have access to another computer.  I really want to just reinstall windows and wipe the drive clean, but if there's an easier solution to this, I'd love to hear it!

Welcome:)

 

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit Supplement from here

Once you have downloaded the tool (contained in a .zip folder), you will need to extract the contents. We recommend extracting to your desktop.
 
To extract the files, locate the zipped folder that you want to unzip (extract) files or folders from. To unzip all the contents of the zipped folder, press and hold (or right-click) the folder, select Extract All, and then follow the instructions. Save them on your desktop

After the files are extracted, double-click the mbar.cmd file. If you are unsure which file this is, try double-clicking both files named mbar - only one of them will run.
 
Update the Database, then click on Next, then on Scan.

  • Let it completes its scan (this can take a while);
  • Once the scan is done, make sure that every item is checked, and click on the Cleanup button (a reboot might be required);
  • After that (and the reboot, if one was required), go back in the mbar folder and look for a text file called mbar-log-TODAY'S-DATE.txt;
  • Copy/paste the content of that log in your next reply;

Hi, thank you for the reply, but I went ahead and wiped my hard drive, then reinstalled Windows 10.  I gave up the fight against this aggressive virus I had, mbar showed I had over 3000 infected files (I know, shocking), so I just wiped it clean and started fresh.  Thank you for your quick help, would you mind if I saved your instructions for next time...IF there's a next time?
