I have a pc that is really infected with Homeland Security Ransomware. The screen pops up in Safemode as well as regular before any program is allowed to run or scan for anything. I tried to download a usb bootable version of Hitman Pro but keep getting the following error when I ...backup
first step, download the hitman pro and create a bootable copy on a usb drive...done
insert usb drive on infected pc then turn on....done
hit f12 for boot options...done
choose USB boot options and chose 1 for bypass master boot record...done
The first time I did it, nothing happened. It didn't respond. I let it sit for a really long time ....hard boot pc because it LOCKED UP!
Ran again USB Boot Options...1 as per instructions...done
then at the top of the page
"couldn't open drive multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)
NTLDR: couldn't open drive multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)
I made sure in the setup that my pc was setup to boot from usb, and it is.
The computer is a Dell Optiplex GX520
What is going on?
What can I do?
I read other threads, but they all mention running scans from the desktop. That is not happening with this pc....The white screen that has that mumbojumbo about Homeland security comes up.
Couldn't open multi disk partition
