I am trying to fix a computer for a friend and I am having serious problems being able to help it. I dont know if it is spyware or what.
Basically I cannot run any programs because i get a program.exe is not a valid win32 application this happens with any EXE file I try, this even means I cannot run HJT either. I can't use the internet very well because every address that gets typed in the browser get jumped and redirected to some advertisment sites. I can't even restart in safe mode because tapping the F8 key does not give me the boot up options I need it just gives me the drives I can boot with! apprentley iv'e read that it's not good to force a computer to boot in safe mode if it does not give you the option too
I don't know what else I can try, I have to type this from a different computer as its impossible to do anything on the infected one.
Hope someone can help.
