Turn the computer on begin tapping F8 key a couple of times...should bring up a menu with several options. See if it will boot into safe mode with networking, then download malwarebytes, update it, run a full scan and remove selected reboot as needed. See where that puts you and post back. It may have hidden the desktop and other things which we will have to unhide, but see how the scan works first.


When it install you can "decline" the first offer. Goodluck

See response 2 in this for more detailed info about using Malwarebytes

You often have a desktop screen in a situation like yours when you load Safe mode or Safe mode with networking - the latter is required so that Malwarebytes can update itself.
