    I think my computer downloaded a Trojan and I can't be rid of it. Help


    I'm having a lot of issues. My computer installed a virus as far as I searched it's possible it's i think a Rootkil or stayscreen sort of Trojan. I can't find my windows defender application nor can I install any virus software on my computer because I get the error message, "The requested resource is in use".
    I'm currently logged into my PC via safe mode. Please help me get rid of this thing!

    By "stayscreen" do you mean browser captured?...if so turn off computer, disconnect router from power source, wait a few seconds then reconnect power to router and fire up computer.

    Rookit and smartservice I believe they're called. It's a Trojan that's got minor control on my computer. I BELIEVE. I'm not entire 100% Sure.
    It's installing a bunch of programs, its opening pornographic websites, ads and installed a new search engine on my browser. I've tried to scan one of my HDD with defender and it's telling me, "this app is turned off by group policy".
    And the application to run windows defender is gone.
    I cannot open anything virus scanning related nor install them. Even in safe mode.

    Indeed, it blocks known AV software, not just based on file name, but also based on digital signature.
