Yep, sometimes few Malware acts like hidden antivirus programs writing itself to the register ,disabling the existing antivirus and even disables the windows defender application, then what else outlook has nothing to defend it.

Here the solutions goes:

  1. Search for the files that are acting as the antivirus and delete them in registry also.
  2. Run a bootable antivirus program and clean it. And then install any AV program, i personally suggest McAfee AV program
  3. Install the following and run them in the same order
  4. rkill.exe, tdss killer, malware bytes . Execute malware bytes in full mode.
  5. I can recommend to install combofix with system restore mode , even combofix prevents the system in safe mode running.
