My computer has been acting up over the last day or so. When I turn it on, everything seems to load fine. But then all of a sudden, Internet Explorer pops up with one or two websites telling me I need to download anti-virus software. I close out of these websites and try doing my normal thing on the computer. However, the computer runs very, very slowly and won’t let me into certain programs (ex: McAfee, Malwarebytes). My computer will freeze after about 2 minutes of trying to do something on it.
Some people have told me to download a different kind of anti-virus software…but it won’t even let me onto Internet Explorer most of the time.
I tried to do a system restore and that will freeze up before it even restores.
Do you think it’s a virus? How do I get rid of it?
I was somehow able to get McAfee to scan yesterday, however nothing harmful showed up in the results.
I am very frustrated. I can’t do anything on my computer right now.
Thank you so much!
