My Windows 7 laptop was infected last night with the Moneypak virus. It is completely locked.

I tried restarting it a number of times in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, but in each instance, after "loading files, please wait...", the screen stays completely black. I literally can do nothing, not even access system restore.

Please help! Thank you in advance.

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware removal forum.

You might also consider the Kaspersky Boot disk if you have another working machine to download and burn it to a disk.

Closed topic as it has a Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs response.

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
