My laptop has managed to accept the biggest problem I have ever had. 'Privacy Componets' it starts it's screen, after loggin in. It then starts a scan and then it is impossible to remove it. I have AVG anti-virus (free addition) but unable to access it. It is possible to get on line through it's screen via click here, this looks like a hyjacked page but it is possible to open any other page. I loaded down SpyBot hoping to try and remove this crap. It loaded ok but would not let run as it said I was not the adminastrator, I am. I have a boot disk by Ultimate PC Engineer, the laptop will not boot-up from disk. Any genuine help would be great.
When will Bill Gates face up to his resposibilities of providing a worthwhile opperating system. Up to-date he has only issued sub-standard bug ridden software, ripping off everyone for billions pounds. I am sure that the lowlife scum that write virus, malware, trojens and other crap could do a better job. See my earlier problem, I rest my case. For those of you good folks out there I use Vista.
Seeing you know about writing software for operating systems then you should have guessed to try removing the malware you have through safe mode. I know you had forgotten this so I thought a gentle reminder to your expertise. PS., of course you know which antimalware to run so no need for any advice from here.
Thanks to rdave13, maybe you would like to research 'Privacy Componets' It seams to stop the use of safe mode, it does the same in safe mode as it does from normal start up, that is when promted for the password, then entered and getting the welcome response, about 20 seconds later only the 'Privacy Componets' page appears there is no desktop, so I am unable to access any program. It also won't allow any boot disc to load. Also tried restore to a previous date, this don't work either.
