Computer infected, Virus shut down computer while in Safe Mode

15 February 2012 - 07:21 PM

My computer initially got a virus from what I believe was web browsing (very few files I've downloaded), it came up as a fake antivirus warning on my start bar. I rebooted in safe mode in order to run Malwarebytes, ran a full scan and received error messages for missing files in the middle of the scan. I rebooted, ran scan again, same error message but later in the scan. Eventually after 3 or 4 times of doing this Malwarebytes found 1 infected file and as the scan completed, a message popped up asking if I wanted to close MWB, and the computer just shut off. If anyone could help me i would GREATLY appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Computer randomly restarts and has issues booting after running MBAM and CCcleaner

Was cleaning up mom's computer, ran MBAM and CCcleaner, she told me she got a BSOD the other day and now the computer will suddenly restart and have issues booting. Making some funky noises as well. Any help would be appreciated!
