Recently I noticed that I was unable to open any application that had to do with the removal of malware as well as some other applications as well. I researched as best as I could and followed the many tutorials I found, but all of the programs they suggested were ones I could not run. The error message I received after attempting to open certain programs is,"The requested resource is in use." I did more research and found out that the cause of this is most likely a rootkit. I eventually got so tired of trying to fix this that I tried to reset my entire computer, but I am also unable to do that for some reason. Any information that may aid this problem is greatly appreciated.
