My PC laptop running Windows Vista was infected with the "Vista Security 2011" virus...
So I followed the steps at: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-win-7-internet-security-2011
First, ran the FixNCR.reg file, which opened, and did its job successfully.
Then, I ran the RKill file, which opened, and did its job successfully.
Then thirdly, I ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program. It started up and everything seemed to be going just fine- got a little ways through the scan, and then the computer shut off and now it won't turn back on. Nothing happens when I press the power button. The computer is dead. The battery was on a full charge, and the power supply has never had issues. I took it to multiple outlets, even pulled the battery and put it back in. Still no response of life from the PC.
Is it possible that somehow the registry edits and running these programs somehow fried the computer? Or is this just a crazy coincidence that the computer dies right after running these fixes? If anyone can offer some advice or anything else I can try, please let me know! Thanks.
