I think I am infected with some kind of malware, I have tried a boot-time scan with Avast! anti-virus, it told me it moved 6 infected items to the virus chest but it didn't fix my problem.

Basically my computer is not executing .exe's when I try to open them. I was trying to open Malware Bytes anti malware to do a scan and I can see the process in the task manager but the program does not appear, and shortly after the process in the task manager just quits.

I don't have any restore points for a system restore, it appears they have been deleted.

Help much appreciated! :)

I am running Windows XP Service Pack 3 2002.

EDIT: I tried running Hijack this to post a log, but I cannot run hijack this, it does not open.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a OTListIt2 log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a OTListIt2 log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
