(with networking) and see if any of the security programs can be run, especially SAS and MBAM. If they open, update them and try a scan.
Hi, I have a VAIO PCG-FX805 laptop, Win XP Home (SP2). I have noticed since yesterday that my anti-virus (F-secure) is not updating the virus definitions. Also my laptop was very slow, compared to last week. I have done a full scan (presumably with out of date virus definitions), which didnt pick up anything. I then tried to run Malwarebytes which had been installed in my computer and it wont work. Tried downloading it again, after uninstalling it and still wont work. One of the other threads in this forum suggested download MBAM through a "clean" computer to a flashdisk and running it from there. I tried that - it didnt work either. Have tried renaming the MBAM exe files; still doesnt work. I have SuperAntispyware, Spybot S&D already installed. None of them would run either. I tried accessing Norton, Kaspersky and many other anti-virus websites and am denied access to all of them. I can access most other websites, though. I have got a hijackthis log, but wont post it until someone asks me to do so.
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
