Hello, I have got the dreaded "Advanced Virus Protection" virus.
I have got through many steps to try and removing it. Some read on this site and some read on others. Most of the steps were hindered due to the virus itself and finally i figured out a way around it, booting in Safe Mode.
I followed steps to open in the utility editor through the BOOT.INI (or something of the sort) and it asked me to restart to boot into Safe Mode. It shuts down and restarts to a black screen. No Windows logo no nothing. No connection to my monitor. It just boots and sounds like a normal run but no display on the screen. I didn't touch any connections to the monitor or PC. This virus is the worst. Ruining every possible outlet of repair.
I consider myself semi-tech savvy and usually can manage fixing things, but this has stumped me. I desperately need help fixing this.I don't want to loose my files and don't want to buy another computer.
Please is there anyway to run my computer again? I see nothing at all on the screen and it doesn't run windows at all.
I am running a Dell Optiplex GX620 with Windows XP.
