I have managed to get one of those viruses that pretend you have a virus and then try to trick you into buying a new lot of anti-virus software. I Have had a couple of these before and managed to get rid of them through using malwarebytes anti-mailware, however with this new one i have got, I am unable to open anything on my laptop at all from music files to word. The interent browser will open but only to the page where they suggest you buy the fake anti-virus software.

Some of the virus shown are wmiprvse.exe and trojanspm/lx.

Is there any way i can get rid of this virus without access to the internet. I have no data or software on the computer that I really need to keep.

I hope someone can help me Please!!!

Thankyou Luke
