There may be malware that's blocking the detection and hiding the primary infection.. As so, try running Rkill per the instructions below, then run Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware.

If you can download the tools listed below on the problem computer, great, but you may need to use a separate, clean computer, download the tools, copy them to a DIFFERENT flash drive or CD, then transfer them to the infected computer.
_______________

Once that's done, then restart the computer into "Safe Mode with Networking" and use the instructions below. If you can't start in Safe Mode, then run all the tools while in "normal" Windows first, then run them in Safe Mode afterward.:

After downloading or transferring it to the problem machine, run the
following tool to help allow the removal programs below to run.
(courtesy of Grinler at BleepingComputer.com)There are 3 different
versions. If one of them won't run then try to run the other one. Be
patient.... as a black window should open, then close after finding all
the background programs.Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as AdminYou only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.

Rkill.exe
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.exe

Rkill.com
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.com

Rkill.scr
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.scr
_____________________

IMMEDIATELY after running the "Rkill" tool above, run/install the Malwarebytes and
SuperAntispyware installer and update files from the links below which
you've also copied to a CD or flash drive, and transfered to the problem
machine. Do NOT restart the computer after running Rkill. After that, run a full system scan
and delete anything it finds.

Malwarebytes Installer Download Link (Clicking on the links below will immediately start the download dialogue window.)
http://www.besttechie.net/tools/mbam-setup.exe

Next, install and run a full system scan with the SuperAntispyware program
and the manual updater from the links below. As before, you may need to
rename the installer file to get the program to install.:

SuperAntispyware
http://www.superantispyware.com/SuperAntispyware

Manual Update
rhttp://www.superantispyware.com/definitions.html
____________


And after that, if everything's fine by you can't connect to the internet,
then follow the procedures below to check your network "proxy" settings
again.Open Internet Explorer and go to Tools-Internet
Options-Connection Tab. Click on the LAN settings button. IF there is a
check mark next to "Use a proxy server for your LAN", uncheck it. Click
OK. Then OK, again.
__________________

Next, download and run the tool below to bring back any files that may have been hidden by the malware on the computer.

So i start in safe mode with network, run the Rkill, then the malwarebytes, then the superantispyware with the manual updates, then the proxy thing and finally use the unhide right? I am a bit confused because you said to run/install malwarebytes and superantispyware and after that you said to install superantispyware again
And yes i can download all those from this pc

Answer
Registry cleaners are SNAKE OIL!
by wpgwpg / May 21, 2013 4:27 AM PDT

Registry cleaners do no good and can cause problems. Do not fool with the registry in any way, shape, or form. It contains information vital to the operation of Windows and is not designed for users to tinker with it. Doing so can only cause problems. You should back up any data you don't want to lose ASAP. You'll be lucky if you don't have to restore your computer to factory settings. I wouldn't trust ANY computer that's had a registry cleaner run on it.
`
Good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
