I appear to have gotten one of those viruses that pretends to be an anti virus program and stops you from doing anything on your computer until you pay them. I have had these before and have gotten rid of them but this one is particularly annoying as when i start my computer up I get a message saying that my computer has some critical error and will restart in one minute, all while not letting me click on MBAM or spybot or anything. It doesn't appear in safe mode with networking so thats how I am posting. I couldnt find any information on Personal Shield Pro when searching on google so I figure that it is a new virus. I did a scan with spybot and there were no results and I scanned with MBAM and it got rid of 4 things but the virus is still there when i'm not in safe mode. I haven't posted here in a long time so I don't exactly know the protocol but I am on windows 7 and I cant post a hijack this log because I dont have it and you cant download from safe mode.
