My last virus, blocked me from running malware bytes or regular virus scan. It disabled my keyboard, changed permissions in directories, stopped my windows from starting... Blah, blah, blah... It took 2 weeks to get it to the point where I could run anything, then I ran Malwarebytes (free download). Malwarebytes fixed my last two virus issues, when nothing else would. Give it a try.

Try to download, install and update malware bytes anti-malware. It's a
free program that gets rid of most of the nasties.
