Windows xp. Shut down yesterday on its own. After restarting, a message box said there was a disk failure. once past that, windows go's into a fake safe mode. A program comes up, called windowssafemode. It does a fake scan and asks you to buy it. I have run across these fakeware programs before but never one like this.
When you tell it to "fix" your computer, it tries to take you to a webpage, https://www.windows-safemode.com
It runs in any profile
It runs in all the safe modes
IT disables task manager
it never allows you to get to an actual windows screen
there is nothing to close or hide, it takes up the whole screen
I took the hard drive out, put it into my scanning computer, ran everything imagineable.
Each scanner removed a few things.
Put the hard drive back in the computer, and it seemed fine. Windows came up. I ran tdsskiller and it found something. I rebooted like instructed and everything seemed great. About 10 minutes later, computer shuts itself down, upon reboot, it says disk is corrupted, wala right back to the fake scanner.
I hadnt even plugged my network cable back in yet so i could not have downloaded anything again.
I AM LOST beyond lost!!!!!!
