Press F8 when your pc reboot and goto the SAFE MODE and install security software to make a deep scan of your pc.

Hi there,

It seems to me that system is infected with more than one virus and it needs to be cleaned before using it further. As your recovery cds are not working so i suggest you to visit any local computer shop they will definately solve your problem and your data will be safe.

Best of luck

Please scan your pc with the latest version of "eScan antivirus toolkit utility" which will detect and remove the known viruses/trojans,spywares and other suspicious files found in your pc.

Download link:

Execute it (mwav.exe) and then update it by clicking on the "Update" and scan the pc by selecting the below options.

Memory/Services, Registry, Startup folders, System folders, Scan Spyware, Drive (All local drives), Scan All Files, "Scan & Clean".

Do revert back with the status and let me know if you need any further assistance.
