Hello. This is my first post on Bleeping Computer, and I hope I can get help for this problem.
I didn't download anything, I didn't go to any unknown sites, I didn't open any weird links, I did absolutely nothing. I turn on my laptop when I wake up and I find my background has been changed. I am posting from another computer because the virus won't let me go an any other sites other than google.
Your system has ben infected! A blue screen with a black box that says "your system has been infected" and it says other things but I don't remember and I'm scared to turn my other laptop back on. It won't let me open any files, and I can't download anything, run any programs, go to sites, blocks task manager, and I can't open system restore either. When I try to do system restore, it says it has been turned off due to group policy. I went to group policy and turned it on again, but it still won't work. It also makes my computer look like an older version of windows. I am running Windows XP 2005 media center edition. In the task bar at the bottom right of the screen, theres a little red circle with a white X in it that keeps randomly popping a message that says to download the latest anti spyware software. I refrain from clicking it. I literally cant do anything on my computer. I have an Alienware laptop.
I was browsing the forums a little, and I noticed all these weird programs. I don't have HiJack this, or MBAM, or AVG, or AVAST, or any other anti virus software or scanning software. I never thought I'd need any of it. I guess I do.
Please help me! Admins, feel free to email me or just post in this topic, I will try to check it as frequently as possible. I have a gut feeling I should just re install my OS, but I dont want to lose my music and my game data and all that.
thanks in advance.
