My PC (not this one) has picked up something nasty
When i log on windows launches IE full screen. No web page loads as it can’t find the internet
Ctr alt del will allow me to open the task manager which then shuts straight away. Similary shutting IE with a key board doesn’t work as it just reopens
I’ve boosted into safe mode and got all the photos onto a back up drive.
Mcafee won’t run continuous monitoring, turn it on and it just turns off. I’m rerunning a full scan. It hung last time at 99% having found nothing.
I tried a system restore (optimistic) but it hasn’t helped
The PC won’t go ontot the internet as it stands in safe mode

Looks like malwarebytes has done it. I aborted a scan 7 minutes in as I wanted to check the settings. It askd for reboot, which I did outside saif mode and all was well. Its now running a full scan
Mcafee. Useless as a chocolate fire guide. Was taken over by something. Worse i couldn’t get the chat support to work. As I’m paid up for this its a bit rubbbish. It will come off and MSE instaed
AVG and windows defender didn’t find it
Kapersky kept crashing

The best thing you can do is download MSSS (Microsoft standalone system sweeper). Plug in a USB stick an it’ll create a bootable USB stick with the latest virus definitions for you. Do this on a different computer and jobs a goodun’
Because it bypasses windows altogether and doesn’t need “installing”, it won’t “fight” with any other programs you have installed.
Forget malware bytes, whilst good – it was never intended to be used in lieu of a full AV package.Posted 5 years ago
