Hi, I wanted to thank you for helping me get started and for the extent of your knowledge.
Before your reply, I left Kaspersky Anti-Virus (22.214.171.1247) running overnight and today afternoon before I got to your reply, it told me this:
deleted: virus Worm.Win32.Autorun.bua. Object: File: C:\autorun.inf.
deleted: virus Worm.Win32.Autorun.bua Object: File: D:\autorun.inf.
I then went to install and run the Flash_Disinfector you recommended and it completed everything successfully.
Then, I downloaded and extracted the MsnCleaner.exe, and proceeded to boot into safe mode.
But then when I went to logged into Windows in Safe Mode and hit Enter after typing in my password, my system rebooted itself into normal mode.
(I logged in with the account I created and not "Administrator," though I don't know enough about computers to know if this makes a difference. When booting into windows normally, only the account name I created is displayed and "Administrator" doesn't show).
I can access my drives normally now and change my folder options to view hidden files and un-hide ones I need, I think it was Kaspersky's and Flash_Disinfector's doing. However, I found it weird being kicked out of safe mode and into a normal reboot.
What do you recommend? Thank you very much for your time.
