Windows 7: had a bad virus, now all my EXEs will not work

had a bad virus, now all my EXEs will not work

Hello I had a bad Virus, I downloaded MalwareBytes to get rid of it.
When Malwarebtyes was done my computer worked great, then while I was surfing the net the computer just rebooted itself. When It came back on All my shortcuts and executables became unusable. When I click on them if i have task manager on, I can see the program come up for between 1 and 5 seconds before it just disappears.
I cannot run any antivirus, anti malware hijack this or even rkill. Not even in safe mode, I even tried changing the file names to .com these programs will just not launch.

I downloaded the registry entries for exe and exefile and changed them, then after a restart the same thing.

I am new to this so if I forgot any info please ask

Sounds like you didn't get rid of all the viruses on your system. Were you running any antivirus software prior to getting infected?

If Adaware is a full A/V, you have 1 too many on your rig. Sandboxie is your friend
