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

Hi :) 

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

All the best Brett :)

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:

1) Download and run rkill:
2) Download and run MalwareBytes (note, do not install pro):
3) Download and run combofix (note, you will lose internet connection):
4) Download and run 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.
