I noticed a few days ago my computer started showing signs that lead me to believe I have a virus, trojan or worm, etc etc.. i dont know which. I suddenly began being redirected to ads about virus/spyware removal, example, id hit to go to google then suddenly get redirected.
I restarted and then the bottom browser thing became classic grey version and will not let me get on the internet, sometimes i get lucky and i can get to google but it takes many restarts, sometimes it just locks up.
i was trying to download spyware doc to see what it found but it would not let me download anything at all. Also another weird thing is, my sound will not play at all.
Now im panicing that all my files are going to be corrupted or deleted. Years worth of music projects and recordings. I instantly turned it off and got on this backup computer. How am I going to save all of my files? they take up roughly 40GB. Could it become worse even without internet connection?
