My friends laptop is having problems.

Seems he had a virus called Digital Protection.

I found this website and followed it :

Managed to sort out the problem. However now when we try and load it up in normal mode it stops when it gets to system32\giveio.sys then hangs on the black screen.

I can manage to load windows in safe mode.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Try a system restor back b4 the time of the infection, then use Malwarebytes to do a quick scan after it boots into normal mode>>> Malwarebytes, Download to your desk top & install, always make sure it's updated then do a quick scan>>> click here

Hi tried System Restore but no restore point.

I've already download Malwarebytes which seems to have sorted the original virus
