    Help requested - west yorkshire police version of met police virus


      Today my computer became infected with the above virus. This seems to be exactly the same as has come up in discussions before whereby the virus locks your computer on startup saying you'be been accessing sites involving illegal activity and have to pay a fine to unlock your pc. I've tried a number of things to try and get around it like running mcafee and Trojan killer in safe mode but none of these have worked. I've also seen a previous solution which involved changing the msconfig settings on startup but there didn't appear to be any abnormal programme on the startup menu. I've also looking into the windows regedit file as has been mentioned here but this appeared to be normal too. Does anyone else experienced this virus and does anyone have another way to try and get rid of it. Many thanks
