I have a windows 8.1 64bit machine that is not allowing me to run any malware software, any downloaded utilities, does not allow me to run services.msc, regedt32, or the like. I get the error "Network error. (file path)
Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose.
All of the files are on the local machine. I have checked permissions and they are correct. it appears to be something like the exe virus but I am unable to even get the machine to boot to a rescue disk or go into safe mode.
Any suggestions?
