I have this problem that i've been trying to fix now for a few hours, but I just don't know what to do.
Earlier today i got the "Brave Sentry" thing in my toolbar. Unfortunately i didn't know what it was at the time and i just tried to close the bogus error message it gives you, which appearently installs some spyware and tries to get you to buy something. I have found out how to get rid of this, but another problem showed up before i could do anything.
I restarted the computer and when it powers back on, there is no start button, no toolbar, no icons on the desktop. It is just the blank screen and it does not allow you to right click or access anything. Pretty much the only thing it lets me do is Ctrl + Alt + Delete to bring up the task manager, which may or may not be helpful.
Even worse, after a while a window comes up with a warning and a timer that counts down from 60 seconds. The message says "Windows must restart because Remote Procedure Call (RSC) service terminated unexpectedly". When the timer hits zero, the computer just restarts and everything repeats as before.
In the task manager i can see that CPU usage is 100% the whole time, and it takes a very long time to shut down and restart.
If anyone can help me out with this i would be very greatful
