Specs: Windows Vista
i cannot open any files with .exe as it asks me to open with internet or find file using other sources, cannot system restore and have even lost my recycle bin, i can still get onto internet, is there any free downloads as i am short of funds and hope to try and find a free solution before spending money

but I don't think it is going to work because the virus will probably not allow it to install.

Just for info, if MalwareBytes will not run due to a virus then you can change the exe file to either bat or cmd. This applies to both the download and the program exe. It was designed that way so that it could be installed and run when a virus has disabled exe files.

Try #2 above first tho.

Please come back and let us know how you got on.
