Specs: Windows 64
I have Windows 7 tried to download and run multiple programs followed lenthy directions, had to be saved as exe files, merge files, restoring from an earlier date, restarting in safe mode, etc.. The only thing that opens is Internet Explorer 64bit. I have looked on multiple sites that state they have the cure but nothing has seemed to work, I feel like I've tried everything....? Please help me! :(

You have to outsmart the virus by downloading from another computer & putting on a USB stick or other media.

Use the Malwarebytes technique on all programs.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware ( MBAM ) Use Quick scan.

Try it in Safe mode with Networking.
If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run, navigate to this folder:
2: C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
At the top of the page, Tools > Folder Options > View, click > Show hidden files and folders and untick > Hide extensions for known file types.
How to see hidden files in Windows

Rename executabes to .com . Most viruses block either by file name, or by extension.
