cannot get any anti virus or spyware programme to run. winifighter keeps blocking attempts to run. have avast anti virus, spybotsearchanddestroy and superantispyware programmes, but cannot get them to run.

Try starting in safemode (tapping F8) on start-up. Some PC use F5. Once in safe mode start Avast. Right click on the console and select ' scheduled scan on boot up'. Reboot and Avast scans prior to the OS loading. You'll need to attend the scan to delete or quarantine what it finds. Reboot and run Malwarebytes.

Try this pay for program on 30 day trial.It will remove anything it finds.
If it asks for payment ignore it and carry on with the scan,
Even if it does not clear the problem completely at least it will allow you to update and run the rest of your security programs.

update to johnnyrocker, rdave13 & buteman. have tried your suggestionsm but still no luck, winifighter still taking over computer. buteman mentioned Malwarebytes, have not got that programme, where can I get it from please. Anymore suggestions would be helpful, otherwise it looks like a reformat & install. Tesfred.
