Basically every .exe file is unable to open and will always have an error popup at the bottom right screen saying " ***** application cannot be executed/ The file is infected/ Please activate your antivirus software Error".
I've tried AVAST scan in safe mode yet it still doesn't work.
I can't access/modify/delete any registry because everytime I would enter "regedit" in the run command prompt, it would flash and quickly close.
I've even downloaded a program called "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" But I can't even run the install because it's an .exe file. Every forum I've been to says to rename the extension from mbam-install.exe to mbam-install.bat or pif, srt, com, etc and they still don't work. Renaming the extension does not work at all and it only comes up with the same error.
I've tried a lot and I would really appreciate help! Thank you.
