I definitely have a virus - the computer will start up - but I cannot open
files, desktop - nothing at all.
When computer opens - a box appears - some kind of movie
When you close it - takes you thru to message page - computer is
locked - will only be unlocked by paying $100 etc.
I read an earlier thread that said that you may be able to get
a virus-fix by downloading it onto a jump-stick - then hit F8 (from memory)
during start up.
Post also mentioned you would need the Windows discs (which I don't have)
but may be able to access.
I also have a SEAGATE hard drive back-up, which I backed up today -
before I got the virus.
I am now on another laptop - would it be SAFE to download my current files
from the SEAGATE back-up disc - with risking infection? I have work to complete...
My computer with the Virus - is a HP Laptop - with Windows 7 Home Premium,
Any help to get rid of this virus would be greatly appreciated....
