I recently caught a virus that does not allow me to boot into normal mode. It will start into my desktop and then go into blue screen every single time. It also somehow uninstalled my Super Anti-Spyware program and Malwarebytes program. So if I go into safe mode, and I try to run these programs I will get an error message indicating that it's already running. It says "The requested resource is in use". I can't seem to run these programs.

If I don't find an answer, I may have to resort to reformatting my computer. So if I go into Safe Mode and move my files, like Word documents and Excel files and video files and audio files into a external hard drive, can the virus follow with the transfer and damage my other files on my external hard drive?

Open MRL topic at https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/643060/malewarebytes/page-2 .


Please continue that topic and do not open any more topics on this same system until the malware forum topic has been concluded.


Thanks :).
