I received a malware alert about 2 files from my avast anti-virus, it recommended that I press OK to delete them, I did, and then it said something about a " boot scan " and I pressed OK, my system started to restart ( I realized what a boot scan was, haha ) then instead of the usual boot up things with the logo and stuff it started a scan, since I knew those 2 files were not malware I canceled the scan and Windows started, but the screen was darker, taskbar was back to classic style, sound was disabled, the wi-fi icon didn't even appear, and my usb mouse was not working but my phone was conn
So I encountered an issue here about 1-2 weeks ago. My computer on startup will freeze right when getting to the windows desktop, right after the Task bar shows up before the icon's appear. I am able to full start my computer when the Protection module is set to not start with windows. I can still go and start the protection module after windows fully starts up but the drawback is I don't always remember to. Any ideas?
So I downloaded Malwarebytes in hopes that it could remove some things and then my computer would run faster. Big mistake apparently. Okay so I ran a quick scan. When it was done there were at least 100 trojans on my computer. I clicked remove and the program did its business. I eventually got a prompt to shut down my computer and then restart to effectively remove everything. So I did. Now when I turn on my computer it just boots to black. The windows start screen pops up and then just goes to black. I dont even get to the log in screen. I can see and move my cursor. I cant open task manager.
