Virus crashed laptop


Recommended Posts

Hi. I am using Fujitsu L1010 that runs Microsoft Window Vista Home Basic. recently I realised my Google chrome showed 'Aww Snap' quite frequently and the window always directed me to some ads. I downloaded AVG free version to scan and it showed that the laptop has infected with Trojan. I decided to download Karpersky trail version to remove the trojan virus. When I ran the Karpersky, the laptop hung for a few times and I reboot. One time it showed 'you will need to restart your computer to complete installation process'. So I restarted and since then my window could not be started up. The mouse cursor cannot be moved to click on the user for logging in. I have tried to plug in my mouse instead of using touch pad, it still could not work. Same goes to Alt+enter. The cursor can be moved when it entered Bios setup but not safe mode. The cursor can also be moved before the window started up. 


I have tried on system repair but it did not work. When I went to diagnostic center, the diagnostic report shows no hardware is affected but the problem cannot be diagnosed. It asked me to unplug removable disc if I have plugged in any which I didnt.  


If I really need to reformat my laptop, can my data in disc D be saved?


What should I do?

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll be working with you.
Before we start please read and note the following:

  • Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
  • Please be patient. I know it is frustrating when your PC isn't working properly, but malware removal takes time.
  • Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
  • Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a Upload Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
  • Stay with me to the end, the absence of symptoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.
  • Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
  • Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay someone to repair it.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.

:excl: I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!
:excl: There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!
