A few days ago I felt I had some minor virus problems with my Windows 7. I checked the Microsoft site and found the suggestion that I should use Windows Defender Offline. I downloaded it to my computer and ran the program. It started scanning my computer immediately and has never stopped since. No matter what I do, and I haved tried every suggestion I can find on the net, I cannot get my computer to boot. I can't get into anything on that computer. I have tried making recovery disks (I have another good running computer with windows 10) and using the Windows 7 install disk but nothing will work. That computer will not respond to anything. It just goes on, and on scanning with Windows Defender. I shut it down and it comes back on with the usual boot signs but will not respond to any of it no matter what keys I press. It then goes into Windows is loading files, after that it says Windows is loading. But windows does not load in the normal way. Instead it reverts to Windows Defender Scanning and I cannot find a way to stop that. Can anyone please give me any helpful ideas as to how I might correct this situation? I would be most appreciative of any advice anyone can offer.
