Thank you in advance for reading this post.
I'm pretty sure my computer has a virus.
When I start my computer I get mulitple error messages that read:
- Bad image
C:\Windows\system32\secur32.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error....
Since this started I've had limitted access to applications on the computer. I have access to the internet, only through firefox (chrome stopped working).
Back stroy, I was running Avast security, my subscription canceled and I wasn't able to renew it right away. Once this error started I attempted to renew my subscription however my Avast program will not connect to the internet to access my new license and update.
I contacted Avast, they accessed my CPU remotely. They told me to remove, Norton and Mcafeethat were also on my computer. they ran a sytem check and in the end told me they could fix everything remotely in about 15 minutes but it would cost $179 to do so. Trust me I would love to pay them and get it fixed but I'm a student on a budget so it's something I need to figure out without them.
My system is an Acer Timeline X running windows 7 home premium
intel Core i5-2410M
Intel HD Graphics 3000 up to 1760 dynamic video memory
4 GB DDR3 Memory
640 GB HDD
I'm open to any suggestions, if you need more information please let me know.
