Greetings everyone. Let me start by thanking everyone in advance for the resources and advice that is found on this forum.
So as to the problem i am having with my computer and my actions thus far i will start at the begining. I will be the first to admit that the things i have done so far were above the level I should have been and would appreciate any and all help. I have a toshiba satellite running Windows 8.1.
Last night my computer became infected with the malware that locks up your computer with the fake law enforcement ransome message. My computer would boot up and within two or so minutes the malware would pop up. I attempted to run root kill programs but there was not enough time for them to finish before being locked out. I attempted to go into safe mode with no luck, I was simply not allowed. I altered my boot sequence to go straight to safe mode with msconfig. Now when i start my computer it is stuck in a sequence of restarting, without ever loading to windows.
I know the experts will probably cringe about my tweaking with the computer in such a way. But this is where i currently stand.
