I got a rogue antivirus program on my computer yesterday, Antivirus Soft. I followed online instructions (from bleepingcomputer) for removal and when I start up in regular mode, the computer takes forever to load. When I try to connect to the internet, the program I use to do so freezes. When I tell the system to shut down or restart, it takes several minutes even to get to the blue "Windows is shutting down" screen, and that screen will stay on, I have to manually shut it down. I can't connect to the internet, and now when I load the system I am asked to choose an account to log on to (Admin/etc. this has never happened before). Also I can't click on the start button to pull up the menu, no programs i try to run will run, and my anti-virus (AVG) does not find any infections when I do a scan in safe mode. I can't do a scan in normal mode, avg will not open.
I must have either done something wrong in trying to uninstall this thing, when I restart in safe mode and use rkill and MBAM, no processes will be killed and MBAM doesn't find any infections.
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated, thank you
