Wow, what a long weekend and now I am feeling like an idiot! Here is the story:
I started having some search engine hijacking issues last week. Ran AVG scan, and deleted all threats, still had the redirecting problems. Ran Spybot scan, and deleted all threats, still had same problems. Ran TrendMicro scan and deleted all threats, still had same problems. Downloaded Hijack This, ran scan and deleted all threats, still had same problems. Downloaded antimalware, ran scan, deleted all threats, still had same problems.
I should mention that after running each scan and deleting threats I would run a second scan which always came up clean, but of course I still had the redirecting problems in google and yahoo search engines.
During my last reboot something strange happened!
Black screen and message:
NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
After doing as the message asked, the same screen came up! Over and over! Ugh, what did I do? What can I do now? Any suggestions anyone may have would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and please keep any instructions broken down to bonehead levels please. I think my tired eyes are getting ready to plop out of my head after messing with this bleeping computer all weekend, LOL.
