Ok, here's the problem. Starting yesterday, Avira has been contacting me non-stop about different viruses detected, the main ones being TR/Rootkit.Gen and Swizzor.Gen and more, but mainly Trojans and most found in C:/system32/driver.
After repeatedly sending all the files to Quarantine, it seemed to calm down a little. I ran a scan with Malwarebytes, but after 9 hours, it froze and was so slow I had to open Windows Task Manager and shut down my computer mid-scan.
I went into Safemode and scanned my pc with Malwarebytes AND Avira. I then rebooted and went back to normal Windows.
Today, I went into Safe Mode to scan with Malwarebytes AND Avira (with around 90 viruses in total found). However, Rootkit still kept coming up so I tried to download Avast because of its wide range of features, but whilst installing, I came back and my computer had rebooted itself. It will stay on the Log in screen for a few seconds then restart again. The furthest I've gotten is logging into my account and then the screen goes blank. It continues to restart even when I don't touch it.
I am now in Safemode. Btw, I downloaded Avast from their website and I am using Mozilla Firefox not Internet Explorer (if that helps).
I need this problem fixed ASAP because I have to start my GCSEs coursework which determines the grades I get when I get back next Monday. What do i do?
