Im not even sure if it CAN boot, to be honest. It hasn't done so yet, just stays on the loading screen. I have spent all night trying literally evrything to get rid of this whatever you want to call it. After absolutely nothing else worked, I downloaded TDSSFix and it detected nothing. I turned off the computer and started it up normally, and it told me something about needing a type of boot to work. I have no idea why I decided toturn off my laptop before removing it, but I did and now it won't boot. I am seriously considering giving up and smashing the computer because this is way too stressful for me right now. Can someone please, in a way that's as simple as possible, explain to me what I need to do to get this all to stop?

Restart the PC

Press F8 on bootup

Click on REPAIR

On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:

Okay so it managed to load some time over the course of the last few hours, but the virus is still there. My Local Disk bar is red and nearly full, even though it says I've only used up 24.8 GB, and every few minutesor so a new tab will open with the starting URL 'api.yoontoo' before going to an adsite.
