my wife called me yesterday saying that a security thing popped up while she was on the internet and then it just kept popping up eventually when it asked for money she realized it was a scam. we originally called dell who we have about 6 months on a 3 year warranty on but they said it wasnt covered and we would have to pay them a lot more to fix it. we then started searching for ways to get rid of it. i tried a simple restart in safe mode download malwarebytes and run it. it found and removed 208 items but whenit rebooted in normal mode the virus was still there. i then tried another suggestion to reboot normally but then open task manager right away before the virus gets going and then shut down the process that seems to produce the popups. that seemed to work then i ran a full scan again and it found and removed 1 more item but again when it rebooted the virus was back and mean as ever. i then found your reove security tool and securitytool (uninstall guide) and tried to follow those steps but when i tried to run rkill the virus popped up and shut it down as it does with most programs and files. i followed the directions to leave the virus box open and run rkill again but it didnt seem to make anay difference it shut it down behind the box and then other popups continued. i moved on to the next step anyway and reinstalled malwarebytes and renamed as instructed, but when i used the malwarebytes exe download link it said i couldnt save the file to the malwarebytes program folder beacause i needed to be an administartor even though my user account is the administartor. so then i looked around your site and found that i could use the forum to get help. thanks so much for your kindness and patience to be willing to help. i did all the steps in the prep guide but when i have tried to run the gmer file the computer has gone to a blue shutdown screen and ive actually lost this message 3 times now so im going to try to send it without the gmer. if i can get it to run later without shutting down i will add it in a reply if thats ok. thanks again

my wife talked to dell again and they ended up deciding to send a replacement mother board and hard drive. I'm so sorry if ive wasted anyones time, but with the new parts we dont have the problem anymore. if there are any suggestions on what we should do to better prevent things like this from happening again, i would really appreciate it. the tech who did the repairs said he uses avast! free home and recommends it highly. ive downloaded and am running it on the new hardware. Again I apologize for wasting your time. thanks for your willingness to help.

How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!

As this issue appears to be resolved I am closing the topic. Please send me (or any other Moderator) a Personal Message (PM) if you would like the topic re-opened.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
