Man, if i cant download anything i cant download and install any program whatsoever, anyways i already made a system scan with my paid anti virus Bit Defender, and eliminated all the viruses on my computer, did the same with adw cleaner i had both previously installed on my pc.

The reg key you mention is to scan any download file after download completes, I do not believe that key will give issue you have. Here are its setting options:

Scan With AntiVirus registry key values are: 

  • 1: Will turn ‘Off’ or disable the AV scan
  • 2: Optional scan
  • 3: Will enable the virus scan right after you completely open or save a program or file.

Use the following links and see if resetting your Browser to Default will make any difference:

Check for and delete untrusted root CA certificates:
  • Select Windows key and R key together,,
  • In the Run dialog box type MMC, and then click OK.
  • The Microsoft Management Console (MMC) appears.
  • In the MMC, on the Console menu, click File then Add/Remove Snap-in....
  • In the Add or Remove Snap-in dialog box, click Certificates, and then click Add.
  • In the Certificates snap-in dialog box, click My User Account, and then click Finish.
  • click OK on Add or Remove Snap ins.
  • Expand the Certificates Current User node by double click
  • Expand UnTrusted Certification by double click
  • Double Click Certificates Trust List.
  • The details pane appears, showing all of the root CA certificates that are currently untrusted.
If there are untrusted Certificates listed for Malwarebytes or any other Security Programs delete them....

Ensure to plug the Flashdrive into an open USB port, Continue with the following:

  • The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
  • Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.
  • In the command window type E:\frst64 or E:\frst depending on your version. Press Enter
  • Note: Replace letter E with the drive letter of your flash drive. <<<----vey important
  • The tool will start to run.
  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. You will need to boot back to Normal windows to post the log, or if applicable do that action from a spare PC...
  • To boot back to windows, type exit at the prompt and hit enter
