New HP Pavilion g6 - 2249WM. Runs on Windows 8. Down loaded something bad. (yes I thought it was protected.
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.
