wondering if I could possibly have some of your time and assistance here. :-)
My laptop had been running reasonably well recently and my default browser has been Google Chrome for some time now.
Until....I started playing Command & Conquer Alliances online and had to switch my browser to Internet Explorer, updated it and now I have some killer malware/viruses.
I also downloaded Windows Security Essentials ( which admitedly may have been a dodgy link...but I cannot verify this) and Malwarebytes.
Windows Security Essentials kept popping up with threats, even after they had just been deleted and laptop had been restarted. I have now unistalled Windows Security Essentials and Malwarebytes.
My laptop now currently has no anti virus software installed at all and no firewall!
PROBLEM: On startup I get the blue screen: coooo135 %hs missing. (and I have no AVG installed on my machine)
I have performed numerous system restores etc...and have finally been lucky enough to get the laptop to boot up and I am currently writing this thread online, on wifi, on the laptop I am having the issue with. (no safe mode or anything)
the virus/malware is playing random music in the background and redirecting my internet explorer searches to ebay etc. ( it just played some Dora The explorer music/advert 2 minutes ago)
I really need this laptop working asap for a university presentation and honours project. I have taken the day off in order to hopefully get this fixed and if I could get some help here I would really appreciate it guys!
