So, I recently got a Acer Aspire one from a friend that needed some work. It seems that it has a particularly nasty Malware program calling itself "Personal Antivirus. Now I have dealt with something like it before, but this one is quite a bit nastier than the one I dealt with, if I boot straight into normal XP is blocks the internet completely. In Safe mode with networking it blocks any Google searches. I was able to get Malwarebyte's anti-malware installed, but when I run it, it doesn't load up on the screen, but it shows up in task manager under processes. I also installed Avast Anti-Virus, but that's supposedly "installed improperly" according to a window that pops up when I run it. I tried running Acer's eRecovery Management program, but that also crashes. I tried to get a system restore going, but when I choose a restore point and hit the next button nothing happens. Anyone have any suggestions?
