I acquired a virus today called "scanner". it has completely taken over my computer with messages such as CRITICAL ERROR: Windows can't find hard drive space. Hard drive error. CRITICAL ERROR: damaged hard drive clusters detected. CRITICAL ERROR: RAM memory usage is critically high. RAM memory failure. CRITICAL ERROR: Hard drive not found. Missing hard drive.
I have no icons just a blank screen, It keeps rebooting my comp automatically.
I got this virus when I was looking up recipes for crockpot yam recipes. Can u help me?
Merry Christmas and TY
