Lali ho I've got a major problem. My netbook is...fucked. I run AVG 9, the free version. Never had a problem with viral attacks, etc. I only use it for word processing, Facebook and here. But now my AVG has been disabled by a viral attack, or something. I've got something which claims to be my Windows Malware Guard demanding money from me, claiming I have a worm in a key file. I've tried to use my system recovery program to 'rewind' the system back to before this happened, but this new malware program is blocking it. I'm currently backing up critical files to an SD card but it'll take a fuckin' age. Is there any way to obliterate this god-forsaken program so I can spend more than 13 seconds on my netbook without it demanding my money? As I said, I've NEVER had a problem with AVG before. I recognise that it's not the best option but it's free and it works. If it helps, here's a list of the 'symptoms'. - Refusal to let me use basic programs. My word processor, WinRAR, anything that's not linked with paying for this service is blocked. Hence why my net browser remains active. Visit the website, read the testimonials, FUCK OFF. - A high pitched scream sound effect alerting me to 'four high risk files' or 'data transfer alerts' which I know for a fact this fake malware program MUST be responsible for. I've not downloaded anything for months. Nothing that would be dangerous anyway. - Shutting down file transfers to my SD card, thus preventing me from backing up critical data. - Refusal to allow me access to the recovery menu. Task Manager, System Restore, everything dies on startup. PLEASE help. I need my netbook. It's my link to my friends. I HATE viruses and stupid ignorant bullshit like this. As I can't use my recovery menu, I'm out of ideas. Short of hitting the mother fucker with a hammer. Right now I'm transferring several GB of data onto a 16GB SD card, but it's taking ages as this malware program is draining literally every speck of processing power I have. Any ideas?
