Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1420nx (SR1420NXPS69AA) PC Desktop
Desktop computer, Compaq Presario - model # on CPU SR1420NX - Intel Celeron D Processor, Windows XP.
Popups started randomly, even when not on internet explorer. Spyware Guard 2008 installed - not by any user, just randomly. Tried to uninstall - icon disappeared for five minutes then came back. Tried restarting computer - no change. Hit ctrl + alt + delete and restarted in safe mode. Black screen shows up with "safe mode" on all four corners, then shows startup screen - but the screen had a wierd pattern all over it (think pattern fill in microsoft word or powerpoint objects and slides). After that screen it goes back to the black screen with "safe mode" in all four corners and "Windows XP Home..." across the top.
I have absolutely no clue what to do, and all of my homework and research project and family pictures are saved on the computer. Please help.
Spywaregard 2008 is malware, a parasite if you will
the last 1/2 of this article will run down a list of files you need to delte to get rid of this nasty little bugger. You can also download various tools to remove it, but it is dependent on your comfort level. if you are comfortable searching for files and changing a couple of registry keys, then by all means, manually is the way to go. If not, you will not have a hard time finding a tool to get rid of this
