10/16 got a message that I needed to call a 1-800 because I had a virus, could not get close out the message, checked my AVG and all the circles were red, I then shut down PC, when I restarted it said preparing automatic repair, then it says choose your keyboard language, but my keyboard nor mouse work. Cannot get the PC to do anything.

I feel really stupid, I don't know how I would even begin to do that. The keyboard (wired) is not working, I have tried unplugging it from desktop and using another port but it won't work at all.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64 and save it to a flash drive.
  • Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.
  • Click Start and while holding Shift key on your keyboard click Power --> Restart.
Note: It is important that you keep Shift key pressed while doing this or it won't work.
  • Now you should get a window like this where you need to click Troubleshoot.

  • In the next window, click Advanced options and select Command Prompt.
  • Now you should log in into your account and after that Command Promptwindow.
Access the notepad and identify your USB drive

In the Command Prompt please type in:
and press Enter.
  • When the notepad opens, go to File menu.
  • Select Open.
  • Go to Computer and search there for your USB drive letter.
  • Note down the letter and close the notepad.

Scan with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

Once back in the command prompt window, please do the following:
  • Type in e:\frst64.exe and press Enter.
    You need to replace e with the letter of your USB drive taken from notepad!
  • FRST will start to run. Give him a minute or so to load itself.
  • Click Yes to Disclaimer.
  • In the main console, please click Scan and wait.
  • When finished it will produce a logfile named FRST.txt in the root of your pendrive and display it. Close that logfile.

Transfer it to your clean machine and include it in your next reply.
