Having run MalwareBytes and found lots of infections, which after running again, is now 'clean'.. However, I cant run 'Spybot' after reloading, flashes up and then disapears in task manager. And for some reason 'AVG' is not working either. Tried uninstalling, an re-installing but get error, .. Severity: error, Error code;0xE001C046 could not establish connection. Initialization of the AVG online installer. It then prompts me to go online to learn more, but then I get another error, web page wont connect, even though I can get online to other sites. It asks me to diagnose internet problems, but I can get online.
I have run 'sfc /scannow' to repair. I have viewed AVG in services, and says it is 'stopped'. I have tried re-starting but PC reports, cant find service. So in Summary, cant run Spybot or AVG, and some web sites fail.
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
I cant load windows in safe mode. When I interrupt the boot, and get the safe mode option, I choose this, and all it does is come back to the option screen. All the time I am typing, the hardisk is rumbling away in the background and the floppy drive led keeps coming on every 20 second sor so.
