Malwarebytes wont open!

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am having many problems with my computer at the moment which i am positive is because of a virus i picked up while trying to download a TV series. No i don't have any illegal programs like utorrent or other software. After downloading this file i could clearly tell it was just a bunch of infected files. So i ran a quick malware test on malwarebytes and it pick  up at least 25 virus/.So i rebooted the computer and opened googlechome and noticed that i had this webpage  called websearchers a very dodgy webpage so i clicked on Malware bytes to run a full scan but to my surprise windows help said that it was corrupted. So i tried to re-install. while it was doing that all these error codes were popping up on my screen. I think it was a runtime error or something like that anyways after it was downloaded it still would not load because windows said it was a damaged file. So i had a look in all the system C files and there were alot of suspicious files that were created on the day of which i download the file. But i think they clean because i scanned them with avast and it said they were clean but when i tried to deleted it said i needed admin permission even tho i am a admin? but i cant look in system32 files because when i do my laptop instanlty freezes. So i booted up safe mode. Didn't work because it wouldn't load. so then i had a look on youtube about it and found out about malwarebytes chameleon tried that. Got to a certain scanning point in the sysyem32 files  then it just terminated itself. Thats all i got so far help would be appreciated. And i forgot to mention i did a scan with avast just before and it picked up like 3 virus 2 were terminated but the other one couldn't be and it was a rootkit virus?

To be honest im 80% sure my computer is clean. I scanned with avast again and picked up nothing. I did read the virus that it picked up previously and they looked pretty serious

I Had:





(all on the same date)

Im guessing there dangerous virus's and i have noticed before that advast never picks up virus like malwarebytes so there could possible be malware lurking but honestly i think that these virus have permanently stopped malwarebytes from functioning
