Ctrl+Alt+DELETE- is NOT A DELETE NOR AN UNINSTALL OPTION .
Follow these steps to get ur compuet back to normal.
Step #1. Restart, and before the computer logo comes on( dell, hp, or whatever ur computer is) PRESS F 8 A COUPLE OF TIMES-- a black screen with white lettering will appear. with ur u and down arrows, select SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING) the computer should look weird as it starts up in safe mode.
Step #2.Download Superantispyware from
Download it,install it, run it. Perform Quick Scan. Once scan is complete, click Show results-check all threats found and click Remove Threats.
(As a small PS- i choose Superantispyware over MBAM(Malwarebytes), simply because MBAM is not what it used to be, and Superantispyware actually cleans up where MBAM failed)
Step# 3 Download AVAST from
On the lest side, click DOWNLOAD NOW. Install, run it-remove found threats.
Step# 4 Download Cleaner from
Cleaner is a very useful tool that cleans your computer of temp files, history and cookies. Its also used to fix any registry errors.
You are done. Now restart your computer. Everything should be back to normal.
Do not download more then necessary. One of the biggest myths and mistakes made by people in general, is thinking that the more anti virus programs you have installed on your computer the better it is.THAT IS A MISTAKE AND A MYTH. The reason for that is because anti virus programs counteract and overwrite each other, thus errors in removing viruses. One ativirus an one anti malware, is more then enough.
Also- i recommend running AVAST, SUPERANTISPYWARE and Ccleaner once a week.
