White screen on startup

Hey guys so recently its been happening to me that if i shutdown my computer, upon start up (and after logging in) i will be taken to a pure white screen. This screen dissapears when i enter safe mod but comes back once i try to go into normal mode so i am at a loss.
I am a gamer, and it has normally only happens when playing a game and a graphic bug caused the computer to freeze, upon reboot i would get the white screen (in the past its been enough to start it in safe mode and then restart in normal mode). thank you

  1. Hi :)

    Sounds like the "Police" virus...what AV are you running ?

    All the best Brett :)
  2. 1) Can you reboot and get into the PC in safe mode?
    2) Is there a second user account on that PC you can try to use? Usually this is an account specific virus.

    If you can get logged in, run the following tools:
    (This does not come with a warranty, you are responsible for any software issues caused by running any of these scans.) That being said, I work at an MSP and use these tools daily.

    1) Download and run rkill: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/
    2) Download and run MalwareBytes (note, do not install pro): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-a...
    3) Download and run combofix (note, you will lose internet connection): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/combofix/
    4) Download and run tdsskiller: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tdsskiller/
    5) Scan your PC with your preferred AV software: I use AVG for personal computers and Kaspersky for work PC's, but you can use any AV software you have/like.

    Good luck.
  3. I had the same problem which I fixed easily. Just google alwaysafix
