Windows 7: Windows 7 stopped working, Cant start antivirus programs or anything

I know I'm new here but trust me!

Sounds like some malware or a virus to me. If you can get it to open, please try scanning your computer with Malwarebytes anti-malware. It has a feature called Chameleon that should allow it to install and open even on infected systems. Follow the guide here How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to scan and remove malware from your computer. If it wont install, try it again in safe mode.

Windows & Home Premium, 64 bit

I have to say again I can not install any new or start any already installed programs on my laptop. The only one I was able to start is the CC Cleaner.
Everything seems normal but for that. I cant do it in safe mode, not in safe mode with internet or if I run it as administrator.

As you can't open anything, please try to create a USB virus recovery disk using Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10. This will load before windows starts off a USB drive and will be able to load as it does not rely on windows. Follow directions here: Create Bootable Kaspersky USB Rescue Disk and here: What is Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10?

Download portable supersntispyware. It changes the exe extension to something else so it can open.
