virus that won't let me open task manager?

January 7, 2011 at 12:46:02
Specs: Windows Vista
I have a virus that webroot has not found and cannot erase, it pops up telling me that something is trying to infiltrate my computer and if I want to run antivirus scan- but it is not my antivirus program telling me this so I click no and sometimes web pages will open for various ads.
It also tells me my windows defender is infected. When I try to open task manager it closes it saying it is infected.
What is going on?? And why won't my antivirus catch it when I scan the computer?

It looks like you have a virus that disabled your other virus programs. My suggestion is to reboot into safe mode with networking and download malwarebytes, then install while in safe mode and try to run it.

If that doesn't work, can you let me know which fake antivirus program is popping up? from there i might be able to give you a more specific fix.

I have the same problem and it is called AntiMalware GO. It wont let me open any of my anti virus programs and it keeps popping up with a fake security alert.
