Firstly I am a computer novice and a lot of the stuff here is over my head but I will try to explain my problem aswell as I can.
I recently purchased a Fujitsu Siemens Laptop, I did not however purchase Norton or any anti-virus package, after much Internet browsing I became aware that my laptop was infected with a trojan virus as it kept popping up warning bubbles and the icon was in the bottom right corner tray beside volume control etc. Also in infected my favourites where i had google and when i clicked on google it would take me to an anti-virus software purchase site which of course promised to cure my problems if I bought its products.
I read up on trying to remove it and I ran free versions of Anti Vir & Avg and while they cleared up other infections they could not detect this problem. So I browsed the internet and found a similiar forum where a guy suggested I try this : http://noahdfear.geekstogo.com/ I downloaded it and tried to follow the instructions and started my laptop in safe mode (which i just about managed !) I then went to where Id saved that file and tried to run it but when I opened the folder I could not run the internet required link in the folder and so I double clicked on the other files which opened up various windows with black and white writing and I let them run but they didnt appear to do anything. So I restarted my laptop in normal mode, I got to the login screen and clicked on my username as usual only to be met with this : "dwwin.exe Unable to locate Component - because WINNET.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. " So I click ok and then I get
this " Odyssey Client error - Failed to create OdCertLib COM object from the specified COM server error code 0x8007007E Odyssey must terminate " I click ok and the laptop doesnt respond, just stays on the login screen before the start menu screen and i cannot go any further.
So have I done permanent damage to my pc or is there any way I can repair this?
I have read other threads here looking for similiar but I notice people are asked to save certain files and load them up, the problem with mine is that I cant even get to the start menu so how can I actually see if I load a floppy, Im not sure my laptop supports floppys anyway, it does have a CD drive, so perhaps I could save something onto disc and try to load it up but again I cant get past the login menu due to the messages which I wrote above which pop up every time I reboot, excuse my lack of computer knowledge but Im at at my wits end with this,
I am angry with myself for letting this happen but if any of you guys could offer any help I would so appreciative.
Thanks in advance,
