Re: I got the virus

I can't get it to even load. It starts up. Then the screen to choose the user pops up. When you click on that if logs you off and restarts itself over and over and over again. My Dh was gonna reload it but cant get past anything to do it.

Shut it off by holding the power button down, turn it back on and then start it in safe mode (usually F8 or F12) and then try to do a system restore. Its worth a shot! Good luck!

I agree with the above. I had to do that with a virus I got on FB.

Good luck!

I ended up with a virus yesterday too. But I was able to get back on in safe mode and do a system restore.

Re: I got the virus

to the OP - should be easy to plug your component (the hard drive holding your OS) into another computer and wipe it clean, then restart completely. You're computer is NOT broken, its not trash, but sometimes a serious wiping is needed.
