I have an older desktop (not this one), that is running Windows 7 home premium.
There is a message that comes up and says something to the effect
[Your computer will be shutdown in 10 minutes due to an error. You nay have a Trojan. Call Support at 800-931-9159 for help]
Then a window that can not be closed comes up in the center of the screen saying
Your version of Windows could not be validated, provides the same phone number. Has an update button to click on, which I have not done, nor do I intent to click on it.
There is a Ninja Loader that I cannot delete by using the control panel.
I did run Malware-bytes in safe mode, it found over 400 issues. I ran Microsoft Malicious Removal Tool, which did not find anything. I intend to run Windows Defender next, McAfee Stinger, Norton Online Virus Scanner.
This computer is over 4 years old, and came with preinstalled OS, and software. I no longer remember where the recovery CD is to reinstall windows.
I need good solid advice on what I'm looking for, and how to remove it from the Registry. I have a 64 Bit OS.
I will do my best to upload screen shots later.
