can't download anti-virus software

Recommended Posts

Hi, I really need some help so I can have my computer for finals.

I'm trying to get rid of a virus (or spyware, not sure what it is). I've tried downloading a couple different anti-virus programs (Avira and Malware Bytes) but every time the "System Tool 2.20" blocks the running of the application. I have even tried saving it onto the desktop under a different name, but the same thing happens each time.

Please help if you have any insight. Thank you!

Please don't attach the scans / logs, use "copy/paste".

Try downloading and running the tools in Safe Mode with Networking:

Restart your computer.

After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, start pressing the F8 key.

In some systems, this may be the F5 key.

Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear.

Use the up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode with Networking and press 'Enter'.
