I was running Malwarebytes and Spybot at the same time...had followed directions from MWBtes and was saying good night to Spybot when my monitor went black/blue and did one of those memory dumps. When I rebooted all I ever get to see is the damn scam-ware, whether in normal mode, in safe mode, safe mode with networking etc. So I went looking for help and found you folks. The directions offered to kill this sob off...they don't help as the information to apply begins after entering safe mode...which I am unable to enter
To the best of my ability (at 31 days cigarette free and borderline homicidal) I followed the available directions to get rid of this pest . nfg...I press F8 while booting and start in Safe with Networking but the blasted scam comes in...none of my desktop is seen nor available so I am unable to download (or access the onboard version) malwarebytes. The scammer program seems to be in the driving seat, for the moment anyhow.
OK - WHILE WAITING for help I managed to get into safe mode with DOS.... cmd.exe .. this starts me at
C:\Documents and Settings\David F>
What do I do to run a system restore? Anybody help??
