OK, some more detail.
1. When I start up the computer, it gets to the "Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to begin" screen. Just prior to that being displayed, a "GoogleUpdate.exe - Application Error" screen pops up. It states that "the exception Breakpoint. A breakpoint has been reached. (0x800000003) occurred in the application loader at location 0x00406eef. Click on OK to terminate the program. Click on Cancel to debug the program." I click on OK (but I don't have to), then sign in. NOTE: That pc is NOT connected to the internet while all of this is going on.
2, As it is signing me on to the pc, I get a "Google Installer" message that says "Google Installer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." It gives me the option to tell Microsoft about this problem. Then, all of a sudden that screen goes away.
3. Several balloon screens then pop up warning me of infected files, applications that cannot be executed, etc.
4. A screen by Total Security then pops up, listing numerous trojans, adware, worms, etc. and runs a scan
5. The "Work Offline" screen pops up stating I have no internet connection and asking me if I want to work offline or try again.
If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!
