    I can't get rid of this fake windows security virus thats posing as an antivirus, and blocks all actions claiming that that file's infected, and then redirects me to a website online etc...

    I can't use command or regedit. I tried to search all executable files but it gets about 98% of the search done and then just sits there.

    I have no idea what to do. Id be willing to kill everything and start over but theres about 5 word/excel documents that I need. If anyone knows if theres a possibility i can extract them onto a flash or something thad work too.

    Desperately need help here, Thanks
