HELLO,
1st time posting
I keep having pop-ups of the Secuity Tool and the Windows Advanced Security Center screens. All my icons are gone off desktop, just a blue screen. I downloaded rkill.com but it will not run. Black MSDOS pops up for half a second then disappears. Help is greatly needed!
THANKS
