    I walked into the room yesterday and saw that there was a window on the screen called Open Cloud security. It is fake security software.

    I updated and ran spybot in safe mode. If found a few other entries but, it did not fix the problem. I usually keep a pretty clean system so, I was surprised when it found several entries.

    When that attempt did not work, I tried to download malware bytes. But my browser would not load.

    Now every time I try to boot up my system, automatically Windows repair starts. Unfortunately, Windows repair is unable to fix anything.

    I have even tried to do a system restore. After the restoration Windows still goes directly to repair mode.

    Any advice on how I should start to get rid of this virus?
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the replies. I saw the guided listed above but by the time I got a chance to try them I could not even boot to windowws. it kept trying to do a system repair,

    so I tried an Antivir boot disc, that removed 3 viruses. then I tried a Kasparsky boot disc and that removed 8 items. now it seems like everything is back to normal.

    I have been using Antivir free antivirus. Can anyone reccomnd a better free option?
