Black screen after running Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

Last night I was having strange computer behavior and triedto run an Avira antirvirus that I had installed on the recommendations of someone on this forum. avira couldnt run, my outlook seemed to stop. So I ran Malwarebytes which began but soon had a warning: ERROR: The application module: c:\program fileavirantivirus Dsktop\c:cw-r.ib.dll can not be found and may be destroyed. The file acwvs.exe (or something like that) could not be started.

When I woke this morning, the malwarebytes scan screen was replaced by a black screen and the computer seemed to be in standby. I pushed the restrart button gentely and moved the cursor which usually brings the computer back to life, but i had to do that 3 times and then I got two small white rimmed text boxes - one with my name and one with a cursor ready to accept a password. then after a while, a windows labelled box appeared around the two white trimmed boxes and the text was impling that I should enter my passwrod to unlock the computer.

What should I do? What has happened to my computer?
