Hi

 

Delll 755 running window 10.

 

Norton AV quick scan (subscribed) it came up with viruses, hu*** so I click repair. got green tick.

Looking into files i noticed folder file, set.exe, couple of others, not in the installed program file, just in program file so I just deleted them. I had lost my Google chrome short cut, wouldn't boot from file, I updated chrome, it said another version stopping the update.

I then I did a full scan, as my net was running slow, I left it on overnight, set Norton to turn off machine when finished. Next morning the computer was still on Norton wanted me to click fix and restart, which I did.

When rebooting it hung showing windows logo, rebooted same, rebooted got  the advanced tried a restore said no restore date, I knew there was, rebooted started in safe mode, these file were still there, I rebooted this is when I got the black screen, no further.

I used Norton boot disk, did a scan said infection, My internet connection unavailable it show Opera on bottom line, then Norton message come up saying error in red.

 

I have most of my files on other portions on the same drive, a few download to C drive first. Try to reboot if possible without reinstalling internet is slow.

 

Im downloading Ubuntu to see if I can get into  file delete these files and chrome, I think that one problem.
any advice would be appreciated.

 

Take in advance

Greetings ukpete and :welcome: to BleepingComputer's Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal forum.

My name is Oh My! and I am here to help you! Now that we are "friends" please call me Gary.

If you would allow me to call you by your first name I would prefer to do that.

===================================================

Ground Rules:
  • First, I would like to inform you that most of us here at Bleeping Computer offer our expert assistance out of the goodness of our hearts. Please try to match our commitment to you with your patience toward us. If this was easy we would never have met.
  • Please do not run any tools or take any steps other than those I will provide for you while we work on your computer together. I need to be certain about the state of your computer in order to provide appropriate and effective steps for you to take. Most often "well intentioned" (and usually panic driven!) independent efforts can make things much worse for both of us.
  • Please perform all steps in the order they are listed in each set of instructions. Some steps may be a bit complicated. If things are not clear, be sure to stop and let me know. We need to work on this together with confidence.
  • Please copy and paste all logs into your post unless directed otherwise. Please do not re-run any programs I suggest. If you encounter problems simply stop and tell me.
  • If you do not reply to your topic after 5 days we assume it has been abandoned and I will close it.
  • When your computer is clean I will alert you of such. I will also provide for you detailed information about how you can combat future infections.
  • I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so.
===================================================

Now that I am assisting you, you can expect that I will be very responsive to your situation. If you are able, I would request you check this thread at least once per day so that we can try to resolve your issues effectively and efficiently. If you are going to be delayed please be considerate and post that information so that I know you are still with me. Unfortunately, there are many people waiting to be assisted and not enough of us at BleepingComputer to go around. I appreciate your understanding and diligence.

Thank you for your patience thus far.

Please do this..
