Windows 7: win7 normal mode is locked up, very little still works

30 Mar 2017   #1

windows 7 home 32 bit, I just changed back from 64 to 32bit
win7 normal mode is locked up, very little still works

This on a HP Compaq Presario C700 laptop OS Win7 Home 32bit (that I am using temporarily). Everything on the laptop was fine until I went looking for the web site for the prog called "Virtal Audio Cable". I had the payed version on my D hard drive in an external USB case. The USB case and hard drive got distroyed by spilled can of coke on it. Anyways the web page that I though was the home for the VAC prog . The web page was a phoney. Now the laptop is about 85% locked up. A few folders still open on the desktop but no prog's work, I am typing this post on my Android tablet. all prog's on the laptop return with an error message (I can't remember the exact words) of something like "this program can't open because......). Firefox keeps coming back with "Firefox has stoped working" when isn't even running, and the same thing with Internet Explorer. And IE isn.t open ether. Also ZoneAlarm keeps flashing warnings about virus, trojan horses and so on. ZoneAlarm also keeps popping up with "ZA has detected malware on your computer and requires advanced disinfection". The only mode that still work's 100% is safe mode. I was abale to copy my important files to a USB flash drive. I hope I got the D hard drive in the USB external drive disconnected and turned off before it got infected. Also I took some screen captures with my cell phone camera. My cell phone has a working wifi hotspot and I setup a link between my phone and my tablet (both Android). But I can't find the right free Android app to move the pictures from the phone to the tablet to post here.
As I see it. If there aren't other ideas out there then my only other option is to wipe the laptops hard drive partition clean. And start over clean and re-install everything. I have already saved all my important files to the USB thumb drive.
