I'm New here so please Forgive if I'm doing anything wrong: Ok so this happened about 2 Months ago but I was happily surfing the Internet on my PC and then this Pop-Up comes up called 'WinAntiVirus08' it was basically checking my PC for Viruses. (I have Trojans but they've never really bothered me) I tried clicking the 'X' to get rid of the Pop-up when I realised there was no 'X' I then realised that it was a Virus disquised as a Typical AntiVirus software. While it wasn't fooling me, another Pop Up came up saying that I must agree to the terms and conditions of the AntiVirus software which was installing itself onto my PC. The Problem was that I couldn't disagree or 'X' the Pop-Up off as there was nothing apart from Agree, so I (stupidily) agreed and then quickly shut down my PC in hope that it wouldn't install itself onto my PC. I was wrong....... As soon as I rebooted my PC, I discovered that my Tactic didn't work and that my PC had been deadlocked by this virus posing as an antivirus program. After discovering that I couldn't access the internet and that I'd have to pay the people responsible the Virus if I wanted my PC free. I decided to try and 'System Restore' which had also been deadlocked to the date I'd installed it on, which sucked. When I try to delete it, it tells me it can't be deleted at this time and i must try later (tried 2 months later still need to try again later) So I left it... 2 Months later I have a Vista Disc that will wipe my PC, problem is I can install Vista on safe mode and when I boot up my PC I get the Blue Screen of Death as the system starts to boot up. Long Story Short: 1. Is there anyway I can wipe my PC without any recovery discs 2. Is there anyway I can get rid of this WinAntiVirus08 with wiping my PC Some Details: My PC is a Dell Dimension E520 and the Blue Screen of Death Msg is: Driver IRQL is no less of equal. But I've had this error for a while when I've install Proper AntiVirus Software i.e: AVG If you require anymore info I'll try and help. Please Help, Thanks.
