Hello,

First let me say thanks for this site.

Yesterday when I would go into IE and do a search via Google the link results would send me to different sites - not the ones I wanted to visit. Then this morning this "System Security Anti-Virus" software was on my system and it wouldn't allow me to do anything. It would not allow me to run Malwarebytes - so using a different computer I saw on this site you could change the name of the MBAM file and so I did and I was able to scan and delete about 30 different infected files. The system rebooted and after 5 or so minutes a blue screen appeared saying "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer." I turned the computer off - back on - and it appears again and again.

I tried Safe Mode and a bunch of WINDOWS/Sys32 files ran down the screen and another blue screen comes up saying the same thing but with the added "Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newely installed hard drives. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hrd drive corruption and then restart your computer."

Not sure what to do at this point. Any advice? I can't get it logged on to even scan.

Thanks again.

Update:

I unpluged my Internet and rebooted - now a screen appears that says "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

\windows\system32\config\system

Did this virus just kill my system?

Thanks again for any advice.

I assume you still cannot get into safe mode?
Do you have a retail windows CD?
If not you can download this and burn an ISO:
