My computer recently got a serious trojan/malware virus while I was visiting the site Piratebay. As soon as I visited the site, my computer was bombarded with popups. It turned off an then came back on. Somehow the virus has taken control of all my administrative rights, so I cant do system restore nor can I use my antimalware. I cant go on the internet, I basically cant do sh*t. To make matters worst, The computer starts up in safe mode with a command prompt. I contacted DELL about this issue and they tried to do a system restore from the command prompt but their is a popup that says GROUP POLICY TURNED OFF,CONTACT YOUR ADMINSTRATOR. We even tried to boot from the cd, reformat the system,erase everything and start back at factory settings. Nothing has worked an I'm starting to think my computer is ruined forever. I have tried to get my computer to start up in normal mode but it just starts up in safe mode. I have ran hardware diagnostics and everything checks out fine. My computer is a Dell/WindowsXP... I use Avira,Anti Malwarebytes and Terminator Spyware. Someone help me out if you can. Please dont tell me to download something or go on the internet because I CANT!!!! I would be AMAZED if you guys can fix this problem.
