I recently by accident clicked a popup when my computer was going slow. I am using windows vista home premium 32 bit on a vaio laptop. Anyway so 5 minutes after, I notice my omputer slowing down. I try to play a video using media player and notice the picture is gone. I then decide to restart my computer. ANd bam. nothing works anymore. After I enter my password to login i getthe message explorer.exe has been terminated...so here is a black screen. i try CAD to access taskmgr.exe but it also terminates as soon as I press CAD. then i wait for a while, and all other startup programs terminate before they start. I cant access anyhting and the black screen is still there.
I'm thinking I have a virus of some kind and decide to reboot in safemode. It is from safemode i am currently working with my computer. I have recently followed the advice shown from this link http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35407 . and am going through the process of the various malware items. but i figured if it doesnt work i might as well seek help elsewhere, maybe someone already has had this problem? and also i am a little uneasy about trusting the first site with guidelines about what to do, especially since im getting popups fromt eh first program Superantispyware XD.
So i checked this site and found several people having similar problems, but i havent see a post with anyone unable to do anything at all in normal mode, hence I am in need of helpå.
I have checckedthe event viewer and have the logs from the second I got this. but I must admit it doesnt make much sense to me.
I am using agnitum outpost firewall. however, it wont work in safe mode (drivers wont load) and seeing as i cant do anything in normal mode it is quite useless at the moment.
anyway there ya have it. i have no idea what virus this is or can be, seeing as agnitum outpost didnt catch it when it happened. i can post the event viewer logs from the moment it happened if that helps.
im quite tired now as ivre spent a long time on this and its now 5 am so im going to bed. if something doesnt make sense, and im sure it wont, just ask me what i meant i am too tired to check trhough what i have just written right now.
