  2. Hola, hace un rato este virus infecto mi notebook Lenovo sin darme cuenta, lo que si abri el archivo openme del cual no me parecia sospechoso y todo fue peor. Tengo windows 8.1 de 32bits. No puedo iniciar windows debido a esto y no quiero perder mis cosas… Windows cuando enciende pasa a reparaciòn automatica, pero luego dice que no se pudo iniciar correctamente, intenté iniciar en modo seguro, no funciona. Si me dirijo a opciones avanzadas, todo mi pide contraseña de administrador, y no existe tal contraseña, solo hay un solo usuario en mi notebook. No tengo idea de como solucionar esto, ni siquiera como volver a formatear, nada, ya he buscado un sin fin de opciones. Si puedes ayudarme, te lo agradecería mucho.
    Saludos
