Default Re: helpppppp virus attack

malwarebytes is usually more effective. This is a fake antivirus, I've had to deal with quite a few of them on my brother's computer.

You may have to go into safe mode to download/install it. If so, hit F8 as the system is booting and select 'safe mode with networking' then download, install, and run.
