I've been had

Some virus has overtaken my computer. It calls itself "Personal Shield Pro'.
It has wiped out microsoft essentials and replaced ME. Every 30sec i'm
getting pop-up's that I am infected.

These pop-up's occasionally want me too purchase their service. I'm
running XP and Microsoft even shut my computer down with a blue
screen. Does anyone know anything about this so called company?

I think that I just got hit big-time.

Download Avast or Malwarebytes and run it.

Thank's Dexter. I've got a geek coming over tomorrow night and
hopefully we will get this cleaned up. I do need to get Malwarebites
though.

Right now I just want to shove barbed wire down those people's
oral cavity and pull it out their arse hole.

This will work, but ONLY in SAFE MODE...

While your system is booting up, tap the F8 key repeatedly until you get a black n white text screen.

The black n white text screen will offer you several options:
If you need to update or install AV/AM products, select SAFE MODE with NETWORKING
If you just need to scan the system, choose SAFE MODE...

It's all in my free ebook in my sig if you want more help...

Best Wishes to the speedy recovery of your system!

Patrick
