Hi, there
Yesterday my dad asked me to take a look at the computer because for some reason it wasn't working and so i did, but the problem is a lot worse than i originally thought. Theres a program on the computer that doesnt let you use the internet, open task manager, or open almost any kind of program whatsoever. This program is called antivirus scan and whenever you try to do almost anything it sends up messages saying that your computer is infected and whatever file you just tried to open is infected as well and it sends you to http://afantispy.com/shop to buy the program, i've tried every way i could think of (which isnt very many) but i cant do a thing, in order to post on this site i have to use a different computer. Please help if you can.
Thank You

My wife's computer has this too. I can not start in safe mode, all I get is a black screen with "safe mode" in each corner. Everything I try and open is blocked, regedit, delete temp file, etc. Only thing I haven't been able to try is superantispayware portable because I have no way of moving it at this location. I am in NC tonight but go back to FL tomorrow, so she will be on her own. Should I have her buy a flash drive and try Super? any other suggestions, or should she take it to someone? and if so who? I will monitor this post closely.
