bios got changed by windows defender offline beta RRS feed

  • Question

  • Had a virus on my Dell Inspiron 15 m5040 laptop. It affected the security center, firewall, windows defender, explorer, could not get into safe mode-network-or command prompt. I downloaded windows defender offline beta to a cd and ran it to get rid of the viruses. It found 4 and got rid of them, I think. When trying to reboot, it would only go into startup repair or start windows normally screen. Tried startup repair with no success. Safe mode still did not work. Which at least before running windows defender offline the OS booted up. Did some reading and found that the windows defender offline acts like a OS. It changes drivers in the bios. I can not figure how to change things back in the bios. Can anyone help with this.
