one wicked virus

Post by garyhalexander on Sun Aug 01, 2010 3:23 am

OMG!! I've got a insidious virus going on. My Dell Insperion, Vista OS, has been taken over by a bug that will let it boot to the desktop, but not allow any programs to run. Not only that, it won't allow me to scan before windows boots to find the problem. I'm running MSE, with Defender in the background. How can I scan for virus' before windows boots? I'm twistin' out!!

Hey Gary and welcome to GP, although I wish the circumstances were more pleasant Smile

It seems to me that you are infected with a fake/rogue antivirus - make sure you do not "buy" it!

Please read this and after that post here.

There our experts will be able to get rid of it for you.
