My computer just quit working the other day. I got the blue screen saying it was infected. I shut it off for a day and today it worked for awhile but now when i restart it all it does is go to a screen saying Loading PBR for descriptor 2...done. Thats all it does wont go to any other screen. It wont let me go into safe mode.

Turn the Machine off then turn it back on. What message do you get and how long does it take to say that after you press the power button?

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
