I was able to use the internet after RKill and MBAM ran, but got random windows opening for "wallstreet8news" or something. I reran the MBAM and the McAfee, but neither identified any infections. I shutdown the computer down one night and now it won't boot up. I am getting a black screen with white letters:
We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you arenít sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configurations (your most recent settings that worked)
When I select 1 of the 3 options above a screen appears with lines of code reading:
Multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\System32\DRIVERS\ - a bunch of different codes
Start Windows Normally
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
Seconds until Windows stars: 30 second count down
After the 30 seconds expires the Microsoft Windows XP screen pops up, then Dell screen pops up and then it goes right back to the "We apologize.." message.
I am not able to see my desktop to load the results in the note pad log.
