Wow! It's been a long time since i have needed your support. Firstly, Happy New Year to all! Secondly...Oh do I need your help.... desperately!
I was online earlier today, and all of sudden i noticed my computer started to run slower. Then i saw a yellow triangle with exclamation appear in the system tray (bottom right). Since i have seen malware and spyware before i was immediately alerted and had a bad feeling. I closed internet explorer and noticed two files on my desktop, one looked like a folder and the other a strange file. I never put them there (obv). Something malicious must have intruded my system while i was surfing. Malware Pop Ups began almost instantly . Since i was worried i didnt wait to see what they were pretending to offer, or be. It appeared similar to most scanner spyware. I shut down my pc right after malwarebytes would not load. It stated some sort of hard drive error, which i assumed was fake. Upon rebooting, I was unable to load windows. I had previously installed the recovery console which i was able to access. I did a little reading and loaded the recovery console. I read that running "chkdsk /r" might solve the problem. Well it found some errors after a lenghty check, and said it fixed them. I then rebooted. Now all i get is the blink cursor in the top left corner, immediately following the dell splash screen. I am only able to get F2, and F12 to work. The bios does recognize the hard drive. PLEASE HELP!
I did take a screen shot of the finished chkdsk /r page from the recovery console if you would like me to post it.
Please help me...I'm really bummed.
Thanks - JP
