I downloaded a game mod that came with a.Exe file and ran it to install it; 5 seconds later, I get a barrage of Avast popups saying threat detect/blocked.
I immediately paused what I was doing and ran a complete machine scan, which showed that the malware had spread to all of my open programs and Windows files. I had 300 infected files and was able to remove all but 14 of them. The ones I couldn’t delete gave me the Avast Error: access refused (5) and Avast Error: Could not locate the machine files messages (2). I’m not sure what Access denied means; I tried looking up the issue but couldn’t find anything other than uninstalling anything ( my guess is there are many different ways this can infect you and where it is located).

Fix unable to terminate process ‘access is denied’

Is there a way to get GIF recording to function while running Avast antivirus?

Can’t uninstall avast – how to totally delete avast antivirus in

It had always worked fine until the most recent Avast update about a week ago, when capturing a GIF image, it only saves a static image (similar to a standard screenshot except in gif format), not an animated one.

How to uninstall avast antivirus completely – the best way

The recording of GIFs resumes once I disable avast (by disabling all 11 shields through the taskbar icon context menu). It does not work if I manually disable all shields in the Avast interface; I need to fully disable Avast for it to work. I tried adding both ShareX.exe and ffmpeg.exe to the Avast exceptions list, as well as the ShareX application and screenshots directory, but this did not work either.

Fix: avast antivirus won’t open (quick fix)

I’m working on a Toshiba Satellite c655d-s5200 for my mother. I’ve already used Malewarebytes to uninstall some infections (Avast & ESET) as well as maleware. It was also having major performance problems. When I ran a rootkit scan with Avast, it discovered two, and when I try to take some action, it says Error: Access is refused (5). A screenshot of the avast results is attached. It also discovered the following two secret files:

How to prevent avast from blocking a program

Although my system is in German, I believe you will understand the problem. For aswbiDSAgent, my current Anti-Virus software, I try to set “start form” to automatic (Avast Anti-Virus). I have to manually start it every time, which is obviously inefficient.
Second, each Windows Service has Registry keys that specify the Start type and other attributes. These are located in the HKEY LOCAL MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001Services folder and can be used to modify the start form. However, ownership of these Services may have been set to TrustedInstaller to prevent even an Administrator from altering the data. To do so, you must first take possession of the key.
Like OP, I attempted to adjust my AVG Antivirus service but received the same error message. Initially, I considered modifying registry values in [HKEY LOCAL MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices*]. I didn’t have the permissions to change the “Start” dword value, which corresponds to the “Startup form” options, as predicted.
I couldn’t give my user the requisite permissions (Full Control), so I used a tool called SetACL, which has come in handy before in similar situations. I wasn’t able to do anything this time, though. SetACL, on the other hand, provided me with the following information:
