I'm new to the forum. I was searching for information on help to get rid of some recent virus infections I seemed to get and came across a few topics on this forum. Any help in how to get rid of the infections would be greatly appreciated.
My issue started a few days ago when I turned my monitor on to find a message that my Windows Firewall was turned off and I had a few windows open telling me they were virus removal software and to click and run their scan. I know better than that so I ended them all, turned on the firewall and at this point I had to go to work so shut the pc off.
After work I tried to boot up in safe mode to no avail, the boot up sticks on a mup.sys file and restarts the PC. So I started in regular mode, attempted to update my virus removal software quickly, shut off the internet and began scans. I ran the scans a few times, AGV, Ad-Aware and Spybot. After this I finally got rid of most of the pop ups telling me they were virus removal. The only thing I can notice that's left is my desktop is stuck on a blue screen with a black box reading "Your System is Infected." I am sure I still have some viruses on my PC so I want to clean the entire thing and hopefully learn a bit about keeping this from happening again. Thanks for reading.
