Malware is disabling MBAM and windows explorer

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, well first off my problem started when I would be on the internet, and registry mechanic would keep flashing repeatedly telling me my registry has changed, so I would also run MBAM. Everytime I scanned it came up with about 7-8 objects, most of them being called Trojan.Vundo (or something like that) or security.disable(or something similiar) so I would delete them and the problem would go away for about a day and I would have to do it again a few times.

Next, I would get weird messages upon starting up like "could not run dll as an app" and it also posted some porn links onto my desktop. Also, MBAM wouldn't load and it wouldn't let me install it because of a code 2 error or something and I think it deleted the mbam files because when I would click the icon, it would search for the files, but find nothing. I tried booting into safe mode and running it, but everytime I selected safe mode to run, it would just restart the computer, instead of allowing me to run in safe mode.

Now, when I start up I get a message saying to protect my computer, windows explorer could not be run, so now I can't use my desktop or use any folders, and had to get to firefox by using task manager.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)
