I'm new to this whole forum thing. I was running AOL today when I got a pop up, saying that I had a virus. So I ran McAfee and my computer shut off in the middle of it and when I restarted it, my background image was replaced with a blue screen that had the error message on it. I scanned my computer and quarentined all the files hoping that would work and then I went into "properties" hoping to get rid of the blue screen, but I only have two options: "settings" and "screen saver".
I don't know where to go from here. I tried downloading the Hijackthis program thing but it's not working and I tried it several times and it got really frustrating.
If anyone can help me with this, anything would be greatly appriciated. Is there an alternative program I can download to get rid of the blue screen and virus or is "HijackThis" the only one?
