get Avast internet security. Its awesome and free, this is to protect you from any future viruses. What you can do as of now is probably try and do a system restore, to restore it back to a state that worked. If that fails, backup the laptop onto an external hard drive and do a factory reset. This is what I would do anyway.

Just to put it out there I dont take any responsibility if anything goes wrong, this is simply what I would do.

good luck

Too much dodgy porn website visits I think. Restore it to a point where you didn't have a virus.

Is all of your data backed up? If so, the easiest and safest thing to do would just be to do a clean install :/

lmao antibiotics are never prescribed for viruses. They are only effective against bacteria.

wash your hands before using your laptop. LOL.

most of the virus affect the operating system. and it can't be repaired . but you must remove the virus . . you can do it by anti-virus program. i suggest avast . after removing the virus and infected files. install a new operation system. . and it will be working properly .

You see the driver hooks a function by patching the system core table so it's not safe to unload it unless another thread is about to jump in there and do its stuff. And you don't want to end up in the middle of invalid memory.

Hello?
