My nephew used by 2-year old desktop and suddenly all these unnecessary IE windows keep popping up. I was alarmed when a warning of "TrojanDownloader.xs" appeared. I quickly bought a McAfee but that didn't help. The next couple of days, I purchased the Spyware Doctor from PCTools. It appeared to have removed the adware or virus because the scary black wallpaper with a fake IP address disappeared. It had detected about 240+ adwares.
Being over-cautious this time, I immediately downloaded 2 windows update hoping that it would strengthen the security. After the updates were installed, it asked to restart the computer and I did. Since then, the system would attempt to load the settings and then restarts the system. This cycle keeps on going until I turn off the switch.
I tried different types of Safe Mode but to no avail. Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, From Last Good Configuration, Disable Automatic Restart after Failure, Debugging, and more.
I have a Media Center.
Please help... Thank you.
