Can't run hijack this or combo fix PLEASE HELP ME!


Recommended Posts

I am praying that someone on this forum can help me, please! I have a virus or a worm and when I try to download software, they download, but they disappear. If one accidentally stays in my download manager, when I try to click on it is says that it's been moved since the download. Because of this, I can't download and run hijack this. I have malwarebytes on my desktop, but when I double click on it I get this message:

Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

I can run avg8.5 but it has been tampered with. When I try to run a scan it gives me the cmd black box and shuts down. I have tried to uninstall it and it tells me uninstall failed.

I have tried to download other antivirus' superantispyware, got it to run one time. It removed some stuff, adware, but now I can't run that now either. I get the same message that I get when I try to open malwarebytes. Also, I have right clicked on both and tried to run as administrator (on this and malwarebytes) but the click doesn't respond.

I have tried to run MRT. It started, then shut down, now I get--access denied.

IE was gone and would open and disappear as soon as it ALMOST opened. I got it open in safe mode. I have safari as a secondary browser. No problems there so far.

I am running vista home edition. I don't know what to do. I need any help I can get.

I just found this in my events log...I have a ton of errors and warnings. Most of my services are stopped. I don't know what to start or what not to start, but this was under one of my warnings in my event log:

Windows Defender Real-Time Protection agent has detected changes. Microsoft recommends you analyze the software that made these changes for potential risks. you can use information about how these programs operate to choose whether to allow them to run or remove them from your computer. Allow changes only if you trust the program or software publisher. Windows Defender can't undo changes that you allow.
