So I guess I have malware or whatever. When I boot up my computer, this program called Malware Protector is on my desktop and "scans" my computer. When I try to open browsers and use system restore and the like, it says the program is infected by Win32Blaster.worm or something like that. Not too sure. The reason I'm able to post now is because the program crashed I guess, and like clockwork I could open everything like normal. I just did a full Malewarebytes scan, and I've done many scans with Avast, and they all say there's no malicious items detected, yet there obviously is. So Pit, any idea what my problem may be?

Run a REAL antimalware software. It's most likely scareware, and I fkin' hate it. If you have a bunch of programs booting up that you never installed (intentionally), you are infected.

Also, for future reference, avoid program cracks and porn as much as possible, it's an easy way to get malware.

Go out to your local computer shop, and tell you got malware. They'll help you out. I can't promise the price will be good though.

once you choose a proper spy/mal/adware program like Spybot, boot up in safe mode too be sure the infected software isnt running in the background which is giving you false results

i had this recently, and when i tried to open malware scanner the virus would close it saying it was infected.
what i had to do was find the process in task manager and end it that way, then scan

this is how you fix it.

1. When you boot up the pc go hit windows key + R and type in "MSConfig"
2. Disable it from starting up and check the services tab to see if its there, after u disable that reboot.
3. Go into safe mode with networking (most likely hit F8)
4. Take it out of your registry just google it to find out what keys its in
5. Google the virus removal instructions
6. After do what google says install what I call "THE FOUR HORSEMEN!" (aka Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, AdAware, and Multivirus cleaner - All free)
7. Run them all at least once or twice to make sure the infection is gone
8. reboot and see if it worked (which it should)

after all that keep avast! and Malwarebytes get rid of the other 3.

Then go and rather buy norton ghost or acronis true image and make a copy of your hard disk. That way you get another virus you can just reinstall from that image of your HDD and it will eliminate the virus and you can keep your stuff.

Hopefully that helps!

This has been said so many times, but make sure you don't change anything unless you're definitely sure. One wrong move and you have to do a fresh install.

I have Malwarebytes too. Did you try to do a full scan? Or did you do only a quick scan? If you did only a quick scan, go into safe mode and do a full scan.
