Hi I have this virus which has locked my computer. I can get rid of it with hitman pro but I cant get my pc to boot to desktop. I have tried but cant get a safe mode option. I have made a hitman pro kick start usb but this virus is not allowing me to boot the pc. Has anyone got any ideas how I can get the pc to boot. If I can get to desk top I should be able to kill off the virus. Using Win 8. Help please!

Another recommended method of removal is go to a clean computer and download hitman pro kickstart. You need a free usb as the paogram will format your usb. The kickstart is at the bottom bar of the hitman pro page, it is a little man kicking symbol. The put usb in infected pc and turn on. On start hit F2 (or could be F12 ) and shose your usb to boot from from. If this boots from the usb hitman pro will start at desktop and remove the virus. You will need to accept 30 day free tria. It is then recommended you also scan with malware bytes as well just to be sure. Unfortunately would not work for me but seems to work well with XP and Win 7. Good luck.

Step 1:

Turn your Computer all the way off. Start -> Shutdown.

Step 2:

We need to boot the computer up into Safe Mode with Networking, which is a special mode that may allow us to sneak by the virus warning. To do this, turn your computer back on and start tapping the F8 key on your keyboard until you reach the Advanced Startup Options menu. Use your up and down arrows to navigate and enter to select Safe Mode with Networking.
Step 3:

You may notice a bunch of strange files scrolling by, this is normal. The computer may will either boot right to the desktop, or you’ll need to select your user account. You should now see your Desktop.

Note: If you still can’t get in to your computer, this guide will not work for you and we recommend you Chat with an Expert.

Step 4:

Now we need to delete all the nasty files the virus created. The best way to do this is to run a full scan with MalwareBytes. You can download MalwareBytes for free here.

Step 5:

Once you’ve installed MalwareBytes, you need to select Full Scan and then hit Scan.

Step 6:

Once the scan finishes, you can hit Remove and you may need reboot the computer. At this point, your computer should boot up normally. It’s a good idea to make sure your anti-virus software is up to date and run a full scan, or download a copy of free anti-virus such as AVG or Avast.

At times this virus also stops safemode from giving you access to the desktop, particularly some of the newer strains..

We have had success by booting to safe mode with command prompt and running explorer manually to get the desktop back

cdwindowssystem32
explorer.exe

Should have destop back.

Run SpyHunter or similar to get rid of the virus, reboot, do a full virus scan with decent AV software

You may have to manually bake a few registry setting changes, a quick Google search will show the relevant entries.

This seems to have worked fine. * Try to change your computers time to the previous date and then run a full system scan with anti-malware program. I used Norton.
