You have some very nasty infections, Vundo and fake Antivirus Remover.  You will need to stick around and let Quads assist you with these.  Do not try anything else at this time to remove them as it may become more difficult to access your machine.  BSOD's can result.

It is repairable.  Do you have another machine to work from while we get you opened up again?

Re: Norton Cannot Remove AdWare On My PC HELP!!! :(

Hi,

 

I have had a blue screen before and I recommend you Download Malware Bytes Anti-Malware then do a scan its bound to find adware and other viruses. Once I had scanned with Malware Bytes Anti-Malware my computer stopped blue screening.

 

Spyware: Also spyware can be quite common on computers and is very annoying Download SUPERAntiSpyware and this should remove any spyware.

 

Also make sure:

  • You keep you computer up to date with Windows Update
  • Scan your computer regularly

 

 

 

If you are using any Peer 2 peer sharing software its probably best to uninstall it as viruses can spread through peer 2 peer sharing software.

 

 

I hope you manage to fix this problem.

 

Thanks,
