Have an HP Pavilion with Pent 4 processor (3-4 years old). I recently got some nasty spyware (Anti Virus Live) which took over my PC. I restarted in Safe Mode with Networking, I then tried to do a System Restore. Now when I restart the computer normally, after the Windows load screen it just goes right to a blank screen. I can restart in Safe Mode, not sure what to do next. I did install Malwarebytes and ran the scan to try to address the spyware issue, not sure yet if it was successful as I have not been able to restart normally yet. The blank screen issue preceded the installation of the spyware scanner, so I don't even know if the system restore was successful. Upon getting the pc back on in Safe Mode, is says that the system restore was successful, but still no normal reboot. Help is much appreciated.
I did try a bunch of searching but didn't really see anything specific to my issues.
