I am very perplexed.  I am trying to follow the instructions, but the result is the same -- THE REQUESTED RESOURCE IS IN USE.


I am unable to run rkill or the zemena scanner, because the requested resource is in use.


Malwarebytes rootkit detects over 800 items everytime I run it.


How can I fix this?  Most websites are unreachable because of this virus.


Please help!

I believe this is a rootkit issue and is better handled in the Virus Removal Forum at BC by a virus removal expert. Read the pinned posts and attach any logs requested. You can start a new thread there and after starting the thread request a moderator to close this thread to avoid confusion.

OP initiated new topic in Malware Removal Logs forum, https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/656399/always-requested-resource-is-in-use/ .


To avoid possible confusion, I am now closing this AII topic.
