|johnw, I appreciate the effort, but when I read something like: |
"It's a good practice to shut down all other applications before using System Restore, as it requires a full-system reboot to complete the installation. Connecting to the internet is not required, however. So shut all applications. Then click "Start".
it makes no sense, because I can't do ANYTHING like shutting down applications. And I'll have to be VERY fast to get to my Start button before the virus grabs control of the display...
Likewise with the SMFixer. How do I download a program when I can't get rid of the System Cleaner screen?
I was able to get past the 'windows had to shut down' thing by using "Last Known Good Configuration". I'll see if I can get to System Restore fast enough.
Thanks again. (sorry about slow response--I wasn't expecting such fast help)
