I continually get pop-ups telling me "you're infected! run anti-virus pro 2010!"
My browser has been hijacked, so anytime I run a google search and click on a link, I get redirected to some random website
When I hit control + alt + delete I'm told that my administrator has disabled task manager
Just recently, when I try to run "regedit" I'm told, by "anti-virus pro 2010" that that file is infected so it won't run. Up until an hour ago I was actually able to edit the registry, so this is a new annoyance
I can run malaware, but it runs for six seconds, then shuts down.
AVG (the virus program I actually paid for) will update, but will not scan unless it is in Safe mode, and then, like malaware, it will run for just a few seconds, then shut down
When I try to go to a website to do an online scan, the process does not complete...I either get a webpage full of gibberish or an hourglass that just spins and spins while the program is supposedly doing something, but actually isn't
I'm unable to do safe mode with Networking...I get a blue screen of death if I try
Hijack this will run for about two seconds, then crash
That's all I can think of for now. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be most grateful. I'm about to take a bat to this computer.
