Good morning to all.

This morning I woke up to a quite intimidating alert message from Google Chrome telling me that a possible security threat had been detected, and that I was hence discouraged from visiting any website.

I tried downloading both NOD32 trial and Microsoft Essential but both failed to install.

I am not sure on how to proceed, and any help on this matter would be very much appreciated.

I run Windows 7 32 bit.

Hi you will need a USB and it would be preferable for you to create this boot USB on a different computer

Download the following three programmes to your desktop :

1. WiNTBootIc
2. Windows RC 32
3. Farbar Recovery Scan Tool 32

Extract wintoboot to your desktop
Insert a USB drive of at least 1GB
Run Wintoboot

Drag and drop the Windows 7 ISO to the programme in the space indicated
Tick the Format box and accept the warnings
Press Do It

You will see it progressing

It will let you know when it is done
Then copy FRST to the same USB

Insert the USB into the sick computer and start the computer. First ensuring that the system is set to boot from USB
Note: If you are not sure how to do that follow the instructions Here

When you reboot you will see this although yours will say windows 7.

In the command window type e:\FRST.exe and press Enter (or FRST64.exe)

The tool will start to run.
