Sudden Virus Masquerading as Antivirus
Posted 28 December 2010 - 12:45 AM
Firstly, I run a Vista OS on a Toshiba
and I was browsing and suddenly this weird antivirus program popped up and said I was infected with a worm and closed all my programs and then signs kept flashing up saying this or that .dll couldn't start and to run that antivirus and the program itself kept popping up. I tried Ctrl alt del to bring up the task manager but even that couldn't start so I shut down the computer and restarted it in safe mode. First I ran spy blaster and that didn't turn up anything and now I realize because it is more geared toward popup ads and then I started a scan with McAffee but then I got the blue screen of death and I restarted in safe mode again and it was going through... a black screen with the text flowing up like it usually does... listing programs I think? But anyway it stopped or froze and the computer restarted again so I shut it down. Sorry this is so vague but I didn't want it to tear my computer apart while I caught everything.
Any help? Thanks.
