    please do this :-
    you have a really bad virus and the only thing to kill it is “Malwarebytes”, some times this virus blocks anti-virus sites so download it using another system on to a Flash drive then use the flash drive to install it onto the infected system, then reboot and then run a FULL scan of your system, if this fails try this, reboot and press F8 as it boots up, this will take you into safe mode, then run a Full scan again.
    If it is still blocked & won’t install try this:-
    When it asks you where you would like to save it, change the “mbam_setup.exe” file to xxxxx.exe.
    Then install it, update it, and run a full scan in Safe mode.
    This will clear your system of this virus.

    This is also one of the best free anti-spyware programs; again always run your anti-virus software in “Safe Mode” on full scan.

    This will all help you and are completely FREE downloads.
    Trust me this does work.

    Simple version of what to do:-
    Download “Malwarebytes” onto a UBS Memory stick using a friends system
    Use the Filehippo links as these are completely FREE

    Reboot your system
    As it boots up press (tap) F8
    When in SAFE MODE install “Malwarebytes” using your USB Stick copy
    When installed, run a full scan of your HDD
    Reboot back into main windows again
    Update “Malwarebytes” using the update tab page
    Run another full scan of your HDD

    Trust me this will not harm your system at all, only kill any bad stuff that’s on it.

    This is completely FREE and easy to do and WORKS, so why not try this first??
