Not sure where to put this.
New HP Pavilion g6 - 2249WM. Runs on Windows 8. Down loaded something bad. (yes I thought it was protected.
Symptoms -
Modern desktop loads, but when click on any icon related to internet, system restore, settings there is no response after several minutes the desktop goes blank and only a hard boot will work. This is a complete circle.
Used Win + R, changed the settings to reboot safemode was able to run spybot search and destroy. Nothing found. But now it will only boot with desktop background and two symbols. One is a button for start or restart. The other something about narrator and colors.

Any thoughts? Figure this is virus and windows 8.
