I have 2 puters, one running XP and the other on Vista, On the one running WXP we keep getting Browser & Security Antiadware licence renewal yet don't think I ever had a licence previously. Tried to reboot using the WXP CD but because it an early version CD and I have all the upgrades loaded the CD won't load as it say the CD version is 'older' than the puter version.
When the puter starts into windows I have about 10 sec before it comes up with licence screen then the screen freezes and mouse won't move after that.
I managed to get to try and start in safe mode (f1 on start) but couldn't get the 'up/down' keys to lift the hilight from normal mode to the safe mode/
Any other way to get it to safe mode? or get rid of the licence. I suspect it could be a hacker trying to get me to download my credit card to them.
I can get into regedit if I'm quick enough before it kicks in with this 'Browser & Security antiadware' screen.
I've just managed to get my virus scanner to run which I'm doing at the moment.
