My PC has recently been hit with ransomware.
My Windows Defender was up-to-date but I noticed that my Malwarebytes wasn't and the virus seemed to have slipped through the cracks of my security.
I followed the DIY instructions on BleepingComputer on how to get rid of the ransomware, but the instructions were weird.
How were you able to gain access into your PC through "Safe Mode with Networking", when the Windows Act. Pro. is the first thing that blocks you from gaining access the moment you enter your password??
I did the "Ctrl + Alt + Del" and I was able to get rid of the Windows Act. Pro. but now all I see is a black screen with "Safe Mode" on each corner of the screen.
The instructions seems to go about as if the ransomware never popped up, allowing you to install Malwarebtyes and scan your PC without an issue, yet I can't even do that. I might just format my PC if all else fails.
My question is, how do you bypass WAP in Safe Mode so I can scan my PC for any viruses? I already downloaded Malwarebytes (the latest version) onto my external hard drive (from my laptop), and it's ready to be plugged in and install the anti-virus software. I just need to get into my infected PC on Safe mode
I havent made any changes on my motherboard, or CPU.
I use Windows Defender and Malwarebytes.
I use Windows 7 SP1
