|IBM Lenovo laptop with XP running;
Avast running. Malwarebytes installed and updated.
I have virus that very quickly turns my screen white with only a message to connect to the internet. (the first time it appeared, I got the "Official Government" screen.)
I disabled my modem as soon as this appeared.
I tried CTRL/ALT/DEL, ALT/TAB, ALT F4 to no avail.
Mouse pointer is present. No menus. No right click function.
I tried to restart in safe mode and the same thing happens.
I tried to restart as administrator and the same thing happens.
I tried to select/click on several items to stave it off and was able to get Avast up once.
I ran a boot time scan set to "delete all" which completed.
It was my intention to run it twice but when I restarted it was back, maybe even quicker. I can't seem to get into anything now.
Can I make a bootable DVD and load a boot time scanner?
Can I run something from c:\ ?
Thanks in advance
