I'm trying to fix someone's computer which is infected with a really severe malware, I really don't know what it is since I when I try to run Hijackthis, it runs for like 2 seconds and closes all the time. Not only that, let's say I wanted to go download Hijackthis off a website, internet explorer will close, and even mozilla firefox will do the same.

When I run the AVG setup, it closes after like 2 seconds I executed it. It' weird because I installed AVG for this person and it just dissapeared ever since it got infected.

I tried to run the trendmicro online scan, same story, as soon as I get there IE closes by itself. I tried running the AVG setup in safe mode, same story, even in safe mode nothing will work, I mean this is a really MEAN pest !!!

I was able to run ad-aware and spybot but they don't detect anything suspicious. All I know is it was infected with that thing "c:\windows\.protected" but i removed it with smitfraudfix
I'm running with 18 processes on the machine, nothing suspicious, simply system processes.

I really would like to post a hijack log but it is impossible, I just can't run it for more than a second or so, even in safe mode!
