Over the past couple of days I have noticed that my Internet Explorer browser windows keep closing suddenly on their own. Today, this icon on my toolbar showed up. It is a red shield with an "X" on it and says "Windows Security Alerts" when I place my mouse over it. I clicked on it and the Windows Security Center popped up. It said that Automatic Updates was turned off but when I clicked on the "ON" button, a window popped up saying that I would have to do it manually by going into the Control Panel. I went into the Control Panel and Automatic Updates was set to automatic already but unclicked it and then clicked on automatic updates on again. When I closed the window, the red shield icon was still there. It also had a message stating that my computer may be at risk. I ran McAfee antivirus scan and found several trojans which I removed. I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and 25 items were found, which I removed. Malwarebytes told me to restart my computer, so I did but when my computer booted up again, these popup boxes saying "bad image" started popping up. The only way the system would continue fully loading was when I clicked on at least 20 boxes saying "bad image". My computer has also been running slow and internet explorer windows have started freezing up.

In addition, when my computer boots up, it goes to a black screen with gray letters right before the Windwos XP screen comes up. The black screen asks me to choose between two options which are hard to catch because it goes so fast to the Windows XP screen. One of them was "Windows Console" I think and the other "Windows XP".

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.
