Can't run any antimalware apps

Recommended Posts

I have picked up something nasty this morning.

It created a load of exes in my users/app data/temp folder like a.exe, b.exe, msa.exe and some other weird things. I managed to disable some of the exes in the temp folder, but I still can't run ANY anti malware apps. They load up, but when I click scan they crash after 3 seconds.

I am running windows 7 RC 7100.

Hijackthis runs for a few seconds, then crashes, so no logs possible.

I'm concerned every key stroke is being logged and uploaded through a virus. Please advise on next steps. Thank you

OK. No luck so far.

The process creeping me out is msa.exe

I used an old version of hijackthis, which was allowed. After cleaning suspect entries though I still can't use any modern spyware tools, they get shutdown after a few seconds by the virus. Renaming them does not help, I've tried.

I have already removed a few nasties, but still the problem persists so I'm at a loss. I really want to run mbam but can't. Any help appreciated.

Surprised there are so many reports of viruses shutting down anti-virus apps. How is this possible? Why hasn't microsoft fixed it?
