My computer locked up. Hijacked.

ellie45November 25, 2012

I can't use control panel, spyware blaster and others. They are locked are up. Orange line traveling fast across site I was in.

Looked at my list of urls and came across a strange one called computer pannel defender I think. It is misspelled. I can't recall the exact name but it can be a virus as I looked it up on an iPad that is useable to reach you.

any ides?

The site I saw was called Control panelwinndows defender. If you click onit it goes to c:\windows\system32\control.exe.

" I get these problems at the very worst times."

I'm sorry you're having problems. You imply that this has happened to you before. With all due respect, you should critically assess your antivirus/protection software and your internet practices. What you're doing and/or using is the root cause, because such problems should never occur.

Sheldon, I mean Snidely you have made me laugh at the end of this day. It is true, I need to assess, very critically what I am doing. But if it weren't for silly girls like me there would be no Computer Help forum.
