Hi all,


So last night I was on my computer browsing YouTube when on the bottom right hand side of my screen MalwareBytes comes up telling me it found multiple Threats detected from a scan. It showed up as what appeared to be Stolen.Data (dcclogs in AppData/Roaming) and some 2 Other Malware pieces, one of them disguised as a fake Windows Updater. To this point I had no idea how they got on my system or where they came from. After I went through with removing them, it told me to reboot my system, I held off on it to do another check to see if there was anything else Mbam didn't detect, but shortly before I could download anything else there was a power surge and my PC shut off.


Upon trying to reboot, I was greeted with a Blue Screen and it said "Kernel_Security_Check_Failure". I've never seen this before so I have no idea what this could've been from. Any ideas? Luckily I had a dual boot setup so I boot into Ubuntu on my Machine (this is where I'm typing this from)


My Comp Specs:

OS: Windows 8.1 x64 bit

CPU: Intel i7 6-Core @3.2 Ghz

RAM: 32 GB

Harddrives: 250 GB SSD (Windows System Installed to), 2 TB Data Storage, 500 GB Backup Drive (Ubuntu)

Are you able to boot to Startup/Automatic repair?  http://www.7tutorials.com/fix-problems-keep-windows-81-loading-start-repair

If so, what happens when you try to run it?

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
