  1. I will start when I got the virus it was 2 weeks ago. When i turn on my computer after I type in the password it pause for 15 seconds; Then it flash all these letters and numbers. I can not get in to safe mode because it does the same thing. I try to use my system recover disk but it says wrong operating system i got new disk from the Company it says the same thing. So I got the idea would buying a new OS fix the problem please help. I got the feeling all this would had been avoid that day if i did not work because my computer should a new icon at the bottom but i did not get a chance to read because i was running late.

    Please clarify what help you would like. You tell me you "not been able to get on my laptop or use it."

    What happens when you try?

    I'm sorry, but I do not have enough information to guide you. If you can't get in to the system at all, you are going to need to reformat and reinstall the operating system.

    You will find excellent reformat/reinstall instructions here:

    Beating yourself up because you had to hurry to get to work isn't going to help you work through this. Whatever happened is done. you go from there.

    I can't tell you whether a new hard drive will handle the problem because I don't have any information about what is on the system.

    I'm going to close this thread. If you have a problem in the future and suspect malware, please describe it and follow the scan stes.
