Bleeping Computer Security Suite Removal Steps
in an attempt to remove said malware from my computer (but i also used some other programs that were already on my computer for malware removal) and after all the scans and deletions. I can't get out of safe mode to check and see if it actually killed the virus. Whenever i try to boot normally the computer goes to the Windows XP loading screen (the one with the little bar that shows it loading with the logo) before the screen that says "windows is starting up" or whatever. The "windows is starting" screen is blue, the loading screen is all black except the windows xp logo.
While it is still on the black screen (loading screen) it freezes, and restarts the computer, says that booting was not successful and gives me the option to try again in normal mode, or the safe mode options.
After failure it also gives me the option to revert to the last booting that was successful (would this take me back to safe mode since that is what ive been using? or would it restore settings to before i did all the virus scans and give me the virus infected computer again?)
I am in safe mode right now. i can give you the names of the programs that i have used to scan the computer and get rid of Security Suite.
-MalwareBytes Anti-Malware Free Edition
-SuperAnti-Spyware Free Edition
I have no firewalls running, and no antivirus software enabled on my computer, this was pretty much bound to happen but i am wondering if the virus was attached to a detrimental file on my computer that one of these programs had to destroy to eradicate the virus and now my operating system is screwed up. I also do not have my system restore disk, as ive had the computer for ages and have no idea where the software disks that came with it went to. So its either an online fix, a computer restoration at a local computer shop, or installing an updated operating system i.e. vista or 7.
Any help is much appreciated and i will be paying attention to this topic as my computer is on the verge of worthless without normal mode. Thanks in advance.
