Antivirus Pro 09 is back on my computer, and this time it's better than ever. McAfee notified me of something trying to access the internet, but "chrome" was in it's name, and I was currently waiting for a page to load on google chrome, so I allowed it access. Over the next ten seconds, photoshop, chrome, and windows messenger all went down because they were "infected". I tried to restart and boot up in safe mode, but my computer told me it wasn't working, so I tried to boot up normally. That actually didn't work either. I restarted my computer (laptop), and this time the monitor didn't even display anything. It's like it wasn't even on. My computer didn't go into sleep mode when I closed it. I don't know what to do. Help!
So yeah, screen won't work. Do I need to take my computer to someone? Do I need to reinstall the entire system, and will that even work if I can't see my screen? I've deleted this virus a few times, and I'm pretty knowledgeable, but this has beaten me. I can't download anything (obviously), so don't start your suggestion with that.
