I have been readin' alot on this site, tryin' to find something with my exact problem. Yesterday my desktop got a bogus pop up displayin' the windows logo, sayin' virus found. Thinkin' it was my firewall I click. Bad idea, I know. The bogus scanner started and "infection found" pop ups all ova the place. Closin' anything out just redirects to a Buy their product page. At first I tried Task Manager, which a popup states it has been "disabled by adm." At that time i was still able to access add/remove prog. Nothin' showed up to remove or i didnt know what to look for. Next, I was able to close everything out but the scannin' window and then shut down. Restarted in safe mode with Networkin' and signed in. After start completed their scanner began with no desktop icons or task bar. I did a hard shutdown. And here i am on a friends laptop. The Comp. runs Windows home edition. I'm not worried about what is lost or what i'll have to reinstall, just want to beat this! Please help if you can or direct me to an earlier post that you might know of with this issue.
Thanks for your time,
