okay so I have this stupid virus that everyones talking about and unable to do anything on home computer. the pop-ups dont seem to allow me to do anything. Okay so, if I reboot computer in safe mode with networking, how do I do that? My computer goes to usual windows screen. then I should download an automatic removal tool and full full system scan. So where do I begin.
This thing wont even allow me to restore to an earlier point. It blocks me! :( SO frustrating. Help!
I have tried everything everyone has recommended and the virus is still there and now I keep getting message "trying to locate ip address" I cannot get online and I apparently have no connection. I have tried to do system restore, everything. I thought I deleted all the above bad register keys but nothing and now I cannot even get into register. Help please! I am ready to buy a new lap top.
I cannot begin to thank you enough MIKE!!! Computer is clean now! You saved me soooo much money. Thank you, thank you!
MIKE your a genius, it was so simple. I had someone work on it for 4 hours with all kinds of useless software. I went on and fixed the problem in 5 minutes.
Thanks Mike :)
