I got hit by the fake Windows XP Total Security virus. I knew what it was the second it appeared... I disabled the internet connection but not fast enough. It was launching "emj.exe" and "lssas.exe" (as opposed to the legit lsass.exe?) as the fake scanners.
I have Windows XP. I immediately launched MalwareBytes, but nothing happened. It had disabled the program as well as all web browsers. I then launched Avast! and it proceeded to scan. It found 3 infections. Two were deleted instantly, one it would delete on startup. Confident in Avast, I rebooted.
When I did, I got a bluescreen. Text said to run CHKDSK /F for corruption or viruses. Rebooted again, same thing. Rebooted a third time in SAFE MODE, and I got a screen full of lines about "partition" and the strings ended in files names. This happened in every version of SAFE MODE, so I can't use that to get on my computer.
Then I rebooted and hit f12 for "disk utilities" and did a scan. All disks checked out fine, but I still cannot get to DOS or WINDOWS to run RKILL.
Can anyone tell me how I can log onto my computer to try the fixes that are posted here? Thanks.
