I was having some pop-up problems and was trying to figure out what the problem was. I went out of town before I could fix the problem, and when I returned and tried to resume my repair, Security Tool popped up. I tried following the instructions on this website, and others, to get rid of it, but to no avail. I managed to get into safe mode today to back up some important files, then used the F8 menu on reboot to choose Directory Services Restore Mode, and it booted into safe mode. I couldn't get task manage to come up (all of my desktop icons and task tray are gone no matter which mode I'm in), so I restarted my computer. now, whichever mode I try to boot into, my computer will not come up. When I try to boot into safe mode, it looks like computer freezes in the middle of listing partitions.
Can I fix this myself, or do I need to see professional help? Let me know if more info is needed from me.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help.
