I have a serious issue with my computer and have no idea what to do!

The first symptom was a VIP access pop up that wouldnt close down.

I tried turning it on and off a few times and restarted twice, but nothing helped.

I managed to run a norton quick scan, but it was working so slowly that after 2 hours i gave up and stopped it.

Now both the VIP access and norton securtiy windows are frozen onto the screen

The computer is mostly frozen, the mouse barely moves, and task manager doesn't open when i press cntrl, alt,del. 

I don't know what to do...

help! please!

Do you have Symantec VIP Access installed?

Can you boot into safe mode ( press F8 when booting up the computer and select the Safe Mode option https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-start-windows-7-in-safe-mode-2624540). Does the problem persist when you are in safe mode?

If you can boot into Safe Mode do a System Restore.  Use a restore pointed dated prior to this problem.


Are you running more that one antivirus?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
