Preferred Solution: Can't open any programs (IE, Malwarebytes, Adaware, etc)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

After running Rkill and scanning with Malwarbytes (found and removed 5 issues), MS Office programs will not open from desktop icons. Kaspersky also will not open but, when clicked, a box appears asking with which program it should opened. On some other machines I have been able to System Restore, but this machine will not restore. Have also used http://www.dougknox..../file_assoc.htm to get programs to work but it did not work here. Dell Latitude D531 is the computer in question.

Can you go rightlick on the harddrive in my computer->properties->tools->disk check? (not sure if its the exact name, I dont run english windows, the procedure is called CHKDSK scan)
This can check if its a hardware issue instead of a software one caused by viruses.
 
Try downloading RKill from bleeping computers page and running it. If it kills something, try going with normal antiviruses.

This notebook had antiviruspro2009 running.
I found this and removed.

I still have a red circle with white cross in the task bar that pop ups spyware detection messages.

I have tried to install all the above software with no luck! (I have also looked for Spyaxe and spyfalcon and found nothing)

If I double click the install of any of these programs nothing happens. The HDD buzzs for a moment and the popup appears telling me there is an infection again.

The browser also appears to be hijacked. Clicking the link from the search results of a google search, you are directed to anti virus or spyware sites.

Attached is the results of a month scan of the Random/random program. I hope it has some clues as to what is going on!

Thanks for your time!

Hi I'm having trouble with a very stubborn virus in Vista. Of the scanners I've tried, only Spybot will run. Everything else is blocked, even in safe mode. AdAware service won't start and I get "failed to connect to service" when I run it. Malwarebytes says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access them." AVG tries to run a scan but completes after scanning 0 files in just a few seconds.

Please, any help is greatly appreciated. I am very computer literate but this is the first virus I've not been able to clean.

Thanks

Hello, I am working on a friends computer. It is running XP Professional. A few days ago I removed the XP Internet Security 2012 fake anti-virus, and had no other problems until tonight. Now when I attempt to run Malwarebytes or Ad-Aware as soon as the scan starts it shuts the program down and when I attempt to start it back up I get the error: Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access this item. This even occurs with Malwarebytes when I rename the exe file on reinstall. In addition, while looking up all of the exe files shown on the user account in Task Manager on yahoo or google, when I click on any of the links I get a redirect to www.100ksearches.com. There is no other indication of a virus/hijacker.

Thank You for your Help,
James

A:Action center won't open, Internel Explorer only browser that will open, no MalwareBytes and RKill will not open

An update.

I've tried running MalwareBytes and RKill from a flash drive which is also not working. Windows also ends up unable to load, the startup repair runs and things work fine. Not long after Windows tries to update and then it becomes unable to load again and the startup repair runs again.

I tried running a registry fix for the .exe problem and I get an error stating that the registry is being used even when no programs are running and I am in safe mode.

Hope this information helps
thanks
Jared

Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note:-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. Note 2:-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Don't know what it is but something is stoping me from running certain programs such as Adaware, Spybot, or HighJack This.
Running XP Pro. Performed a system restore and am able to access the web now, but the phantom process is still there. Uninstalled all the junk (Bargain Buddy, etc.) from add/remove.
Killed most processes from task manager but something is still there.

This is my first post in a forum environment and any help will be appreciated.

Thanks....

A:Laptop really slow ran all adaware programs and antivirus with no success

Hello dclynch, and welcome to TSF. You may wish to Subscribe to this thread so that you are notified when you receive a reply. To do this click Thread Tools (above the first post), then click Subscribe to this Thread. Make sure it is set to Instant Notification, then click Subscribe.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad in order to assist you when carrying out the following instructions. If there is anything you don't understand, please ask BEFORE proceeding with the fixes. Please do these steps in order and do not skip any.


HijackThis Is In Temp Folder
You are running HijackThis from a temporary directory. It needs to be in a permanent folder. Please go into Windows Explorer, click on C: then click on File > New > Folder and call it HJT, or another name of your choice. Extract HijackThis from the archive and move it to this folder. The program creates backup files that we may need to use later. If the program is in a Temporary folder, files may be deleted by you or automatically if your system is set to empty temp files.


Unpatched Operating System
It is very important that you get all of the critical updates for your Operating System and Internet Explorer. Keeping your OS and browser up to date will help make you less susceptible to attacks by Trojans and viruses. IMPORTANT! Before we can proceed any further, please visit the Microsoft's Windows Update Page and install ALL Critical Updates for your system except Service Pack 2 (SP2). SP2 should only be installed on a fully disinfected system. At the minimum install at least Service Pack 1a for both XP and IE6. Without these updates your system is wide open to re-infection and we are both wasting our efforts to clean your system. After we have completed your clean-up, we will have you return to the Windows Update page and install SP2. We will also then advise you on how to better protect yourself online.

Please apply those updates BEFORE posting your next log. It is this forum's policy to stop the disinfection process until these basic updates are done. If during the updating process you get a message that your product key is invalid, then you may not have a legitimate copy of Windows XP. Unfortunately it?s also this forums policy that we only address users with a legal copy of Windows XP, therefore if you can not update Windows XP we must stop the cleansing process here.


Unhide Files
Go to My Computer > Tools > Folder Options > View tab and select "Show hidden files and folders". Uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" option. Also make sure there is no checkmark beside "Hide file extensions for known file types". Click OK.


Firewall Required
You don't seem to have a firewall program installed. Using a firewall will allow you to give/deny access for applications that want to go online. If you are unfamiliar with how a firewall works, you can read "Understanding and Using Firewalls". Here are some free firewalls available for personal use:Sygate Personal Firewall
ZoneAlarm
Tiny Personal Firewall
Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall
Outpost Firewall PRO
Please pick one and install it.


Download CleanUp!
Download and install CleanUp! but do not run it yet.

WARNING: CleanUp! deletes EVERYTHING out of temporary folders and does not make backups. If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any temporary folders, please make a backup of these before running CleanUp!

WARNING: Do not run cleanup under Windows XP x64 Edition. If you're not sure if you have the 64-bit version of Windows then you probably do not; however, you can check by using IE to download the whichcpu tool and then running it.


Download AVG Anti-Spyware
Please download, install, and update AVG Anti-Spyware.Load AVG Anti-Spyware and then click the Shield tab at the topClick on the word active to change it to inactive.

Click the Update tab at the top:Under Manual update, ... Read more

A:Can't Open Adaware Or Spybot To Do Scans

Hello Kdawg53188 and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. It looks like we have a couple of potential issues here. Let's get a little more information.Download WinPFind35u.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named WinPFind35u on your desktop.Note: You must be logged on to the system with an account that has Administrator privileges to run this program.Close ALL OTHER PROGRAMS.Open the WinPFind3u folder and double-click on WinPFind35U.exe to start the program.In the Drivers section click on Non-Microsoft.Under Additional Scans click the checkboxes in front of the following items to select them:Reg - BotCheck
Reg - Desktop Components
Reg - Disabled MS Config Items
File - Additional Folder Scans
Do not change any other settings.Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.Let it run unhindered until it finishes.When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.Use the Add Reply button and Copy/Paste the information back here. I will review it when it comes in. If, after posting, the last line is not < End of Report > then the log is too big to fit into a single post and you will need to split it into multiple posts or attach it as a file.Cheers.OT

I have installed adaware and run it via previous instructions and also spybot --

Now when I go to a site that has a document I want,
in PDF format, when I click it and indicate OPEN it gives
me a white screen with unreadable icon in the top
left conner of the page

did I set something with spybot that disallows opening of
pdf files from the internet ??

If I down load it I can open it - using Acrobat 6.??

I am sure there is a virus of some kind. But all attempts to run
any .exe program fail. I cant run malwarebytes that is installed
on the computer either. I cant run the Frst program, things will
download but they will not run to install. Is there any hope of
fixing this or should I just reformat the hard drive
 
Thank you for your help in advance

Running the current free version on Windows 10. Just ran a scan so it appears to be working fine.  When I open the control panel and pull up "Programs" it is missing from the list. There is an uninstall program in its folder.
 
Should I consider reinstalling?

A:Why is Malwarebytes not showing under Programs?

I've encountered software which failed to create a program entry in Programs & Features (Add/Remove) from time to time. It's no big deal if everything is working properly and there is an uninstall shortcut in the program folder.If you want to attempt to correct it anyway, one of the solutions generally suggested by the Malwarebytes Help Desk to try first is to uninstall/reinstall using mbam-clean.exe as follows:How to fully Uninstall/Reinstall Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - MBAM Clean Removal Process 2xHow do I uninstall Malwarebytes Anti-Malware?If it still fails to add an entry you might want to start a new topic in the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Help Forum and report the issue there so the development team can investigate.

My computer has recently been infected with something that will not allow Spybot to run. I have also tried to run MalwareBytes, but that was stopped from running as well. Additionally, I tried to run a Norton scan, but that was stopped prematurely as well.

Initially, I could get both programs to start a scan, but after a few seconds they would shut down. I have recently noticed that both shortcuts seem to have disappeared or may have even been uninstalled.

I tried to re-install the programs, but the same issue (as described above) takes place - programs run for a few seconds, stop running, then the programs mysteriously disappear from my desktop and Start Menu.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

A:Security programs (Spybot and MalwareBytes) will not run

well, i'm no expert with malware.. though one doesn't need to be for this tip.. there's an obvious thing to do,

And by the way, sometimes they won't even install either.

-TRY- running them from Safe Mode.

I did this for a friend, it solved it no problem. Used MBAM (malware bytes...)

if you google like Windows XP safe mode. I don't know vista, but if you google windows vista safe mode.. you should find lots of websites telling you how to get into safe mode.
Then it's just like windows but with less things loaded. And the malware can have less power , so you may be able to get them installed/running.

Hi there,

I am a first time poster on the forum. I believe my laptop has been compromised. I wanted to do a scan on it so I tried to open up AVG and I got a message saying that "The program is blocked by group policy. For more information, contact your system administrator". I also got the same message when trying to open Malwarebytes aswell.

I would be grateful of any help please.

Hello! I'm new and a little computer illiterate so please be gentle.

I'm running Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron 6000 and noticed the other day that my computer was running amazingly slow so I decided to run a malwarebytes scan. Unfortunately it didn't launch.

I tried it in safe mode but it still didn't launch.

then I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and safe mode again but no luck.

Then I surfed this forum a little and tried renaming the .exe to .com but that didn't work either.

What's my next step?

Hello what is your browser and operating system? Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".The tool will open and start scanning your system.Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

Hi all,

I'm new here, but I've used various tips and tutorials from here and other forums on the internet to solve my malware/virus issues usually successfully.

This time, however, I'm stumped.

It seems I've been infected by PC AntiSpyware 2010 and Windows Antivirus Pro. I tried following both of their respective removal guides, but Malwarebytes is not working for me. When I re-install and change the file name of mbam.exe, it would scan for 4 seconds before closing. When I click on the file again it gives me a message "Windows cannot access specified device path or file..."

I just don't know what to now. And so I'm at the mercy of your expertise with this. I have Windows XP btw.

Many thanks.

A:Infected and Can't Open Malwarebytes

Hey guys, I've scoured the forums for some solutions while I wait for someone to help me, but it seems like nothing is helping.

What's worse is that my computer is somehow unable to boot in Safe Mode. The computer would just get stuck and I would have to force shut down the computer to get it to boot again.

Anyone have any ideas what I should do? Thanks.

A:I have a virus and cant open Malwarebytes

Hello,I am moving this from XP to Am I Infected as you are.Some types of malware will disable MBAM (MalwareBytes) and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it.Before saving any of your security programs, rename them first. For example, before you save Malwarebytes', rename it to something like MBblah.exe and then click on Save and save it to your desktop. Same thing after you install it. Before running it, rename the main executable file first***Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..

A:Virus will not allow Malwarebytes to open and or run.

Edit: Sorry I missed the part you tried chameleon. There is an option you can try. Kaspersky Rescue Disk. Connect the computer via Ethernet so the definitions can be updated. You can burn the downloaded iso to a CD or use Rufus to create a bootable USB flash drive.

The other option is to post in the Virus Removal Forum where a malware removal expert can look at the logs you post after reading the pinned topics.

Hi,
 
My name is Aidan. My problem is not a major one since I haven't really had any major problems that I can think of but I am pretty sure I have picked up some spyware since I can no longer open either Ad-aware or Malwarebytes. The Ad-Aware folder says (empty) on the start menu but it is there on the uninstall programs menu.
 
I am running Windows 7 and I also have AVG installed which has thus far discovered nothing leading me to believe that it might be spyware rather than a virus.
 
Thanks.

A:Can't open Ad-Aware or Malwarebytes

Hello - First step, Please try to delete Ad-aware program. If you can not uninstall it, then Reinstall and try to unstall again.Use the Control Panel > Programs and Features to find if the program is listed -Please try to use Malwarebytes Chameleon to scan your computer.The full directions are included in this link above from Malwarebytes Help Section. Try these 2 options first - Thank You -

I am trying to help my niece clear out some of the programs on her laptop as well as running malware software such as malwarebytes. However, every time I run it or try to go into uninstall programs it freezes. I even attempted in safe mode and I am still unable to uninstall unnecessary programs. This is not an issue of the laptop overheating because it does not even feel warm during the process.

I don't know what happened but now if I have two programs with sounds open It will only play the sound from the program that was opened first. Say i hate itunes open and then I open Pro Tools the sound wont play in Pro Tools. Or vise versa. This is killing me and I dont know what is going on. Never had a problem before.

The main problem I'm having is I'm recording samples into my FL STUDIO 8 from my record player via the digidesign audio driver and when i go to play the audio I record in FL Studio's Edison it wont play in FL studio because its "two" programs playing at the same time. So I have to close the program and start from where I left off just to hear the sample. SO ANNOYING!

Please any help will do!

I recently installed free version of GIMP Photo Program to try it and I actually haven't done more than open it once. I mention this because it's the only recent change I've made as far as photo programs go.

I went to open one of my screenshots and it opened with GIMP, which I don't want. I went to Start/Default Programs so I could set the default to one of my other options. Those options would be IrfanView, Photoshop, Windows Photo Gallry, Fastone Image Viewer, Paint or Paint.NET or this GIMP.

The only options which show up under Start/Default Programs/Det Default Programs are IrfanView and Windows Photo Gallery. Why don't the other photo programs to appear there?

A:None of my photo programs are showing up when I open Default Programs

If you sceroll all the way down there should be an Other ... entry. Use that to browse for the executable you want.

My computer has been acting more and more sluggish lately.  I have not installed anything new that I can think of off the top of my head.  I attempted to run malwarebytes but it will not open.  I googled "malwarebytes will not open" and decided to run the chameleon.exe file.  It also could not get malwarebytes to open or update.  The computer is a Toshiba laptop Satellite A215-S5822 running windows 7 (32 bit).  I have ran CCleaner and removed what it recommended.  Can you please help me out to see if I am infected with something?  I appreciate the help.

A:Google redirect? + can't open malwarebytes

The problem is actually based in your router and that in turn is infecting all the other computers on your network (if networked_).Here is the entire fix(from the beginning) that you will need to run on each PC.Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here or HereNext disconnect your system from the internet, and your router, then?Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application. Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.Extra Note:If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process,if asked to restart the computer,please do so immediatly.Next you must reset the router to its default configuration. This can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds). If you don?t know the router's default password, you can look it up HERE However, if there are other Zlob-infected machines using the same router, they will need to be cleared with the above steps before resetting the router. Otherwise, the malware will simply go back and change the router's DNS settings. You also need to reconfigure any security settings you had in place prior to the reset. Check out this site here for video tutorials on how to properly configure your router's encryption and security settings. You may also need to consult with your Internet service provider to find out which DNS servers your network should be using.Once you have ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware on the infected system, and reset the router to its default configuration you can reconnect to the internet, and router. Then return to this site to post your logs.

I tried to remove a virus (some sort of PC Boost) and it was not working so I did a system restore. It appears the virus is gone but now I can not open internet explorer or Chrome. When I tried to run my malwarebytes  I now get an "missing or corrupt" message. I can't get off that message and I now have no internet, ugh. Any Ideas?

Some forms of malware will enable a proxy server, and here are Microsoft's instructions for editing the settings in Internet Explorer. You want to make sure the Use a proxy server for your LAN box is unchecked.

A:Vundo infection and Malwarebytes will not open

Hi,Please try this version of malwarebytes: Click the link hereSave it on your desktop. You'll see it will have a random name, and will look similar like this: Doubleclick on it, so it will extract the files and will start Malwarebytes automatically. In case the installer (random named file) won't run either, rename it to EXPLORER.EXE and try again.When Malwarebytes opens, click the "Update" tab FIRST and select to check for updates in order to get the latest updates.In case Malwarebytes doesn't open, search for the folder mbam-installer on your desktop, open it and doubleclick the file winlogon.exe which will be present in there. This should launch Malwarebytes.Then perform a scan and let it remove what it found. Reboot afterwards (important).After reboot, post the malwarebytes log together with a new HijackThislog.In case you're having problems with above instructions, let me know.

Hi everyone im new here thanks for the letting me part of this site ,
I think ive been infected , the Thing is that whatever it is doesnt let me run malwarebytes it never even opens doesnt letme unistall it either . Its not even letting me do it in safe mode Desnt really let me install anything to the computer , i have avg and adaware and they both dont detect it.
i dont know what to do i had a similar ifection a few months back but malare fied everything but now that i cant run it im hopeless here. anything you guys think i should do besides burn it lol
Im running xp pro

A:infection doesnt let malwarebytes open

Please download and scan with Dr.Web CureIt - alternate download link.Follow these instructions for performing a scan in "safe mode" after running ATF-Cleaner.If you cannot boot into safe mode, then perform your scan in normal mode. Be aware, this scan could take a long time to complete.-- Post the log in your next reply. If you can't find the log, try to write down what was detected/removed before exiting Dr.WebCureIt so you can provide that information.Some types of malware will disable Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it and changing the file extension. click this link if you do not see the file extensionRight-click on the mbam-setup.exe file, rename it to mysetup and change the .exe extension to .scr, .com, .pif, or .bat.Then double-click on mysetup.scr (or whatever extension you renamed it) to begin installation.If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files.Right-click on mbam.exe, rename it to myscan and change the .exe extension in the same way as noted above.Double-click on myscan.scr (or whatever extension you renamed it) to launch the program.If using Windows Vista, refer to How to Change a File Extension in Windows Vista.Be sure to update MBAM through the program's interface (preferable method) or manually download the definition updates and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Then perform a Quick Scan in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the report in your next reply.Note: MBAM uses Inno Setup instead of the Windows Installer Service to install the program. If installation fails in normal mode, try installing in Safe Mode.

I have a few problems I believe may be caused by malware. I downloaded malwarebytes, but it won't open, I only get a loading icon for a second. When using google, it will take me to random pages instead of the link I selected. My Pioneer 115d dvd rw drive also won't recognize blank discs, but I don't know if that has anything to do with this. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I tried opening Spybot and Malware bytes antimalware and it said that it had stopped responding and closed out on me.

I uninstalled and renamed the folders and reinstalled after downloading it from CNET (because it does not let me go to their respective websites as well) but it still does not work.

I saw a few posts saying that i might need a log from HIJACK this so i downloaded and installed it. But no luck there as well. Cannot run it same problem. Tried going into safe mode and trying all three and it still does not work.

Please advise.

A:Cannot Open Spybot or malwarebytes antimalware

I have noticed that several programs, such as Windows Photo Viewer, Windows Media Player, Quicktime Player, and VLC Player will either not open or automatically bring up the "... is not responding." message. 
 
Likewise, the Quicktime, MS Silverlight, and Adobe Flashplayer plug-ins won't operate correctly during certain instances -- the first 2 more so. 
 
I've never come across such an issue, but first thought it was the result of faulty updates of out the many updates this thing goes through. But now, I'm convinced that is not the case.
 
Any and all assistance would be much appreciated.

Hi,

Got a problem with Word and Excel 2007.

Both programs open ok (under 2 seconds), so no problems there.

The problem is opening the program by means of opening a document. It takes about 1 minute

Exactly the same thing with both Word and Excel.

Has anyone got a solution? Surely there must be a quick little registry tweak to sort this out?

Other info:
Outlook 2007 works ok, no delays
Windows XP works ok
No speed issues with computer
Did not previously have Office 2003
Word/Excel documents are local, computer is not on a network
Computer is free from spyware and viruses

A:Adaware.windupdates & Adaware.syncroad In Norton Antivirus Scan

Hi,

The forums are really busy, that explains why logs get behind. If you still need some help, please start with posting a new hijackthislog in this thread. Don't start with a new thread.
Then I'll take a look.

Also, let me know where exactly your Antivirus is finding these files... what file and in what folder are they present..

I just separated from my wife, left my develoment machine behind, and have my laptop which the kids used. It now will not open several programs, including users in the control panel, google chrome, and others, when I click on links, most of the time it goes to different windows, I have ran malwarebytes, azerias, registry mechanic, and even went to reinstall windows at the i362 file, but it isn't there to reinstall from, (I don't have a cd player on this), I have 4 websites to get finished by monday, or I won't have money to pay for a place to live, and it is cold outside!

A:Firefox/Explorer/Malwarebytes/Spybot S&D Will Not Open

Backdoor ThreatIMPORTANT NOTE: Unfortunatly One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?When Should I Format, How Should I ReinstallWe can still clean this machine but I can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards. Let me know what you decide to do. If you want to continue do the following:Install Recovery Console and Run ComboFixDownload Combofix from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop.

Hi ,

The forums are really busy, that explains why logs get behind. If you still need some help, please start with posting a new hijackthislog in this thread. Don't start with a new thread.
Then we'll take a look.
