the first time I had to reformat, and now I really dont want to have to reformat.
this virus prevents any kind of file from opening, the only thing I could open was explorer (not IE, just windows explorer) and security center (the windows thing that says autmatic updates and firewall and stuff) it wouldnt even let me open my antivirus from the tray.
the first time I got it, I immediately shut my computer down, and because it was late, I went to bed, the next morning the computer wouldnt turn back on, even in safe mode, so I reformatted.
I am unable to post any kind of logs as I cannot get into any programs including task manager and dxdiag.
this is like the second week on my current install of windows so reformatting is still in question but I would prefer not to.
thank you in advance
EIDT: oh, and just so you dont blame me for doing this by, say, clicking on those fake pop-ups. I was talking to my friend on facebook while listening to music on pandora when this popped up. the first time I got it, I was writing an essay.
