What burning program do you have?

Jock1e, that was a totally different scenario, the Kaspersky Rescue Disc 10 is totally safe and is the best way of eradicating this ransomware. You have to run Malwarebytes AFTER booting with the Kaspersky disc.

I was infected with that slimeball and it can prevent you from getting into safe mode as well, you need to insert the boot disc and boot from it.

I don't use Windows DVD Maker but there will be someone who does!

I use Ashampoo burning software, there are free 45 day trials as well as a free burning program (think its Burning studio 6 free) I just open it insert a cd or DVD and click on burn!

Jock1e - I think he has already downloaded the ISO, but he could follow your suggestion and download it again.

This is the simplest program for burning ISO's I know ImgBurn

Looks like they have sorted it out!
