Specs: Windows XP
I have a virus that won't allow me to open any .exe, that includes Windows Task Manager, Notepad, and everything else. What can I do to fix this? I have McAfee waiting to be executed if I can find a fix.

i've tried that a few times, even when trying to open up the task manager it won't allow me to do it. It's one of these viruses whenever you try and open a program it tells you that the file is infected and prompts you to download some antivirus software.

Actually, Malwarebytes should be useful at this point. You can
download the program from here:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam-do...

But before installing the program or running computer scan,
make sure the process created by Antispyware Soft virus named
<random>tssd.exe is killed.
