Malware Protection Nightmare


Recommended Posts

I'm typing on another computer that doesn't have the virus. I am getting pop-ups for this virus/malware called "Malware Protection." At first it just prevented me from running programs. I decided to try and boot in safe mode and I actually managed to get a Malwarebytes scan started when the computer suddenly turned off at the start of the scan. I tried again getting into safe mode with and without networking and each time it started to load safe mode, the computer shut down. Then I wanted to just load regularly and it started to shutdown right after trying to pick between loading "Start Windows Normally" or "Launch Startup Repair" under the WIndows Error Recovery, both options lead to the computer shutting down. I need some options please.

I noticed that I am able to eventually sign onto the regular computer desktop if I keep trying after 10 times but even then renaming files to run them doesn't work. Renaming malwarebytes and combofix from a flash drive does not work. Need help.

These are links to Anti-virus vendors that offer free LiveCD or Rescue CD files that are used to boot from for repair of unbootable and damaged systems, rescue data, scan the system for virus infections. Burn it as an image to a disk to get a bootable CD. All (except Avira) are in the ISO Image file format. Avira uses an EXE that has built-in CD burning capability.

If you are not sure how to burn an image, please read How to write a CD/DVD image or ISO. If you need a FREE utility to burn the ISO image, download and use ImgBurn.

Let me know how it goes.
