Cannot see screen after probable malware infection
I have acquired what I believe is the Mandiant ransomeware malware. I downloaded the HitmanPro program from this page on your site ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-mandiant-usa-cyber-security-ransomware ) and followed the instuctions.
I turned off the computer, turned it back on,, and... no screen. Tried three times. It's cranking away as I type this with no screen. I get a quick "DVI" logo in the top corner (which is normal), then nothing but blank screen. Hence, I cannot see what my boot menu key is to direct it to the USB drive that I made using HitmanPro.
It is my desktop that is at issue. I created the USB boot drive on my laptop.
It is a custom made desktop, not from a specific manufacturer. I do not recall the boot menu key. I did run a AVG full scan and a Malwarebytes scan before I shut down, and both found nothing. I was able to open files on my C Drive just fine prior to shutdown. I unplugged all my external drives.
Win 7 64 bit
