Hi have a computer that was infected with a Poliza Ransom ware that freezes system ,  I tried to boot to Safemode to do the normal removal steps but after the user logion and desktop comes up it says logging off and restarts.   When i try going back in on normal boot all I get now is just a white screen and can do anything

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Have you tried booting with a Windows 7 disc into the Recovery mode command prompt and running things like fixboot, fixmbr, and chkdsk /p ?

Was on a time line to get this completed and with no DATA concerns just did a Format and fresh install

Thanks to everyone for the attention.
