WHatever this is, it just totally took over my laptop. My Avira is useless and I can't even open IE to get to BC. Any idea what this is out what I can do (posting this from my smart phone).

Thanks in advance.

I would suggest downloading MalwareBytes to a flash drive from a clean computer, booting your infected mahcine in safemode with networking and run MB off the flash drive to see what it picks up(update MB first). If it will not let you run the MB executable rename it and then try to run it. Delete temp files and check your host file to ensure it hasnt been altered.

You will move to the Automated Removal Instructions

After you completed that, post your scan log here,let me know how things are.

Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

Should I buy the full version of MB for protection? I was using Avira when I got attacked so obviously I'm looking for a new AV program...lol.

Hello, it is probably the best $30 you spend. But Keep Avira also they work well together and compliment each other. MBAM is NOT an Antivirus program so you need one. Looks good here and thanks.
