My computer was infected with SKYNET. After following the instructions to wipe out SKYNET, I ran a final Malwarebytes scan repeatedly, restarting after each scan. Each time. the scan came out clean. The computer seemed to be working fine. Then, this morning I did a Windows Update. There were several installations suggested that I install. After downloading them and restarting my computer, I got a screen stating that Windows could not be restarted due to the fact that a thread tried to release a resource that it did not own. I tried to restart again and was told to check for any new hardware or software that may be improperly installed. Then told to ask hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates I might need.
I shut the computer down, then tried to start in safe mode. Windows tried to restart, but then the same notification that came up before, came up again. I am at a loss as what to do now. I can't do anything either in regular mode or safe mode. Where do I go from here? After dwelling on this all day, I'm wondering if I should have uninstalled all the previous scans that I had downloaded to remove the unwanted SKYNET trojan/virus before running the Windows Update. Being computer illiterate, I'm thinking I shouldn't have tried to do anything at all, but take the computer in and have it repaired. I really thought I could, with the help I received here, fix this issue. Did I trash my computer?
