Hi all. I believe I may have another virus on my system. Whilst browsing a web site, a bubble appeared on my system tray telling me that my firewall was turned off, then the laptop rebooted itself.

Now when I switch on I get a blue screen with a stop message, then it reboots itself.

I can get it into safe mode but only if I press ESC durinf boot up when it asks if I want to skip loading a file.

I have ran malwarebytes which found 5 infected files, AVG has found nothing, spyhunter found a lot of trojan cookies which have been removed but this problem still exists.

If someone can suggest something to me, it would be greatly appreciated. I am having to use my works computer as I probably cant go on the internet in safe mode.

many thanks

Hi. Dont worry about it. I have reinstalled windows and that seems to have solved the problem. I just now have the gruelling task of updating it and installing all my programs again!!! Bloody trojans!!!!

Thanks anyway.
