When i put on the PC earlier this afternoon there was a Pop up requesting me to install the new version of Desktop help.....well I clicked on the relevant bit and it has been installing ever since...nearly four hours...
I can't get rid of the screen which says 'please wait a few moments your new version of bt dh is now installing' at the top and with the rotating circle in the middle under the words 'desktop help is installing now'.
I have tried the escape button...CTRL/ALT/DELETE , switching off for an hour and putting back on again and still that screen is there...nothing else just blue background around the edge. What can I do now???? any ideas anyone....I can't use that pc at all ...I'm using laptop for this. Can anyone help please????
Solved! Go to Solution.

Success!!!!! I switched everything off and disconnected from router.....waited about 15 mins then switched back on ...it began to appear as normal ..task bar and icons...then the dreaded screen appeared still with the rotating circle in the centre....then suddenly AVG appeared with 'Malware detected'
It stated 'malware CLOSEAPP.EXE ' type Downloader.....so that would seem to have been the problem and it has been put in the vault and everything seems to be OK now....
Sorry to trouble you....thanks for answering me.....
