FBI VIRUS

How do you remove the new virus that takes over the computer claiming to be FBI and locks down your computer claiming you have downloaded illegal or pronographic material and asks for $400 dollars to fix?

Re: FBI VIRUS

Try the steps suggested in this post from balcava. I don't guarantee that they will all still work 100%, since these ransomware programs are modified frequently, so let me know if you're still having problems afterwards.
