I have a computer that has been infected with ransomware. I have gotten to the safe mode with command prompt as the administrator, but the infection will not let me go into just the safe mode. I can click on the safe mode but then I get the following message " Page is loading. This could take up to 30 seconds." This is on a white page and then it's like the computer freezes even though I can move the mouse, nothing on the key board works. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello, just letting you know I moved this topic to Here in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum where it will stay.

Please remember to click the Watch Topic button at the top right and select Immediate Notification so you do not miss any replies now that you were moved.
