I am reaching out to my fellow tankers...I think I really did it this time. My work laptop is not working right. Some pop-up suggested my PC was in need of a virus scan (looked legitimate) so I clicked on the window, it performed a virus scan, then said that I have a ton of errors and viruses. It then wanted to to continue the repair process but I got skeptical and closed out of the software. But the damage was done. Our spyware software (pre installed) did capture numerous Trojans, but my computer is still acting up. Specifiacally, I keep getting a pop-up sating that Internet Explorer has been forced to close down since it may contain a virus???? This pops up even when I am not using Internet Explorer. It must be blocking some sort of pop up virus? Anyway, I tried to remove the internet explorer (V7.0) but the system wont let me remove the software (weird). Anyway, now I got a corrupt laptop and if my boss finds out, it wont be pretty. Can anyone who is knowledgable on here please help me clean up these viruses and remove internet explorer? Thanks in advance!

Drop a cup of coffee on it or bump into someone and drop it.

does your laptop have a antivirus program on it? I would suggest 1st try running it in safemode and do the virus scan from there.

If you can get online go here Malwarebytes.org
Very good site and it works wonders. Do the free version and hopefully it can clear up your issues. It does sound like you have some serious issues

You can try AVG Free, Avast or any number of other programs, to at least minimize the visibility of the viruses, then wait a week and drop it off a cliff.

How about run the recovery disc? If IE won't work, you can surely save the vital files beforehand.

sounds like a worm. I had nearly the same crap your going thru. I finally had to reformat the hard drive and reinstall everything. I was glad I had a back up disk.
