Virus/Malware keeps closing the antivirus program and online scanning sites

By archie.bartolo ·

I would like to ask something.
I have a pc that whenever i run the antivirus, it keeps closing the application. also, whenever i browse other antivirus and online scanning sites, it closes the pages still.
couldn't open Taskmanager, msconfig, etc.
i know i already encountered this problem before and fixed it but i couldn't remember how.
i hope someone can help me on this.

thanks in advance.

There's several options:

1. Boot into safe mode with networking and see if that allows you to use those sites.

2. Boot into safe mode and see if you can run the AV programs

3. Boot into a Linux Live CD that has antivirus and/or rootkit detection. I've heard that Helix has some of those capabilities ( ) as does the SystemRescueCD( )

Let us know how it turns out! :)

EDIT: Here's another Linux Live CD that might help:

One more Linux Live Antivirus scanner...
