|I think my friend's computer just contracted a virus.|
She said she had left the computer idling (with no windows or programs open).
And her computer is set to auto-shut down after idling for a while.
She turned the computer back on, she had pop-ups telling her that her avast scanner shields are down, and she needed to turn the firewall on, the camera function pop-up with a red stop sign. She couldn't turn them all back on. She tried to go into Program Files to search for virus but it wouldn't let her go into Program Files. Her Wifi network was also disabled and would not reconnect (but the wifi still works on her ipod and such in the house).
Then she tried to system restore, restore to the earliest possible date, it acted like it was going to do the restore, but it restarted and her keyboard and mouse were disabled.
Tried to shut it down by unplugging everything, waited, re-plugged everything, turned it on, pressed f8 for safe mode + enter, but as soon as it launched safe mode, her keyboard and mouse got disabled again.
So she shut everything, tried again this morning but still nothing works.
Notes: She doesn't have a computer that she can burn a disc for anti-spyware and such.
She has another computer in the living room which is ancient.
