I recently was searching google on my desktop and I ended up getting a google redirecting virus... So after that I ran a couple of programs which ended up only finding a backdoor trojan, which was removed sucessfully. I was hoping that was the main problem, but then when I searched google again to verify the problem was dealt with, I got redirected again. After which; I got on my laptop and searched known solutions to the problem, one of which being norton power eraser tool.
I downloaded it and followed the directions, and it found and removed 8 items, 5 of which was my microsoft office programs. I let it do its thing though and followed through with it because they were marked as "bad", hoping maybe they were just decoy names. Once the computer restarted; my google search worked but as I suspected microsoft office was deleted.. So I went back into the power eraser tool and went through the prompts to undo the changes that have been made, and restarted my computer like it askes me to.
Now, my desktop is stuck at a black screen with a blinking white _ in the top left hand corner. I tried to boot it in safe mode by pressing F8 and bootup and it wont even load.
I would really appreciate a quick responce and solution to my problem, thank you for your time.
