Hello, I had good success on this site several years ago so I am hoping for some more help today.
I somehow contracted a very nasty malware or virus I am assuming while opening an image on the internet today while searching for pictures. It brings up a false anti-virus program that it is telling me to buy, and has completely shut down my computer. I am unable to open any virus programs I have, such as Ad-Aware or Spybot and am even unable to open System Restore.
I am Windows XP.
I am on my girlfriend's computer now. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
