Nasty Computer Virus Warning !

#35176 3 years, 1 month ago
stay off of demonoid it's infected !
I went to log on and instantly became infected !
I had no longer than put my user name and password in and pressed enter and it was on me. I'm having to surf using the "guest account" because I can no longer access any thing from my named account, I cant even get to my anti-virus/malware program.
Any computer Whiz kids know how I can beat this thing ? I can't afford to take it to the repair shop.

HHeeeeeellllllppppppp !!!!!!!!!

First, thanks for the warning. I'm allways cautious with that site, for many reasons. Now, if you can, turn off your computer, and restart.
Then go into safe mode, by hitting F8, during start up. You should be able to access your anti-Malware program there.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Also, if you know the name of the virus/malware, you can look it up on google, and most likely find step by step instructions on
how to remove it.

Good advice. I run Malware bytes regularly. Did you get your computer back under your control?

I run Malwarebytes too, but only the free part. Any advice on whether that's generally enough, or if the extra you can pay for is really necessary/helpful?
