Recently I've been having a problem where whenever I try to run any anti-virus or un-installer program it says "The Requested Resource is in use"

I've tried a bunch of things, like downloading Mbam Chameleon on another computer and burning it on a CD(I don't have a USB drive) and also tried downloading Windows defender online and burning it on the CD. I read multiple articles saying that if I downloaded RKill and ran that it would allow me to run an anti-virus, but it doesn't help. I've done about everything I can think of and I can't seem to get rid of the problem. I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but I'd really appreciate it if you guys could help me.

Hi! My name is zep516 and Welcome to Geekstogo!
I'll do the best I can to resolve your computer issue
Please make sure to carefully read any instruction that I give you. If you're not sure, or if something unexpected happens, don't continue Stop and ask! Never be afraid to ask questions! :)


Next
See if you can download FRST, (farbar-recovery-scan-tool) if not, try booting to safemode with networking and download from there.

4 ways to boot to safe mode with networking in windows 10.

Then

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
  • Please copy and paste log back here.
  • The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.

Nope. Didn't work. Tried scanning twice just in case, but it didn't get rid of the virus or malware that is blocking the anti-viruses. It did remove some, but didn't get the one that is keeping anti-viruses from opening.

Hello,
This is a difficult virus to remove so hang in there as we try a few things.


Do you have the malwarebytes log? go back in the mbar folder and look for a text file called mbar-log-TODAY'S-DATE.txt;

Next

Boot the computer to safemode and run this fix in the safe mode. Lets see if any luck there

Download the enclosed => file. Attached File  fixlist.txt   2.27KB   141 downloads Save it in the location FRST64 is. Run FRST and click on the Fix button. Wait until finished.

The tool will make a log in the location FRST is Desktop, (Fixlog.txt). Please post it to your reply.
