Hello! I've used this site a handful of times to answer some of my questions, but this is my first post.
I'm in computer hell! A few days back I noticed that I had the Security Tools malware. I noticed it in the morning before work and didn't have the time or patience to try to fix it then so I powered down my computer planning to get back to it another day.
So last night I come home, armed Malwarebytes on my flash drive, turn on my computer only to find out that I've got bigger issues than Security Tools. The computer powers on, and when it starts to launch Windows I get to the black screen giving me the options to boot in safe mode/go to last know good copy/etc. No matter which option I choose the computer attempts to act but then just takes me back to the same screen.
It seems a bit too convenient that this happens just after I get the Security Tools pop-ups. I was wondering if it's possible that the ST is the culprit, and if so how do I get around it?
I suppose it's important to mention that I don't have the XP software.
Your help is much appreciated, my sanity is depending on it!
