FBI MoneyPak Scam - Removing Virus



I am new in the forums so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong discussion area.

I got hit with the FBI MoneyPak virus which Mcafee didn't catch and have tried hard to remove it with limited results.

Here's where I'm at:


1. I disconnected from the internet and the blocking page disappeared.

2. I restarted in SafeMode and tried to locate the files in the Registry Editor.

3. LiveAdmin has a promising Uninstall Guide, but It wasn't clear enough to get me to the particular files.

4. I have Windows 7, if that is helpful and will happily provide any further info about my particular case in order to help others

down the road.


This is soooo frustrating and a waste of people's time and I would appreciate any help!


Many thanks!


PS I noticed Hayton had begun to respond to this problem (thanks!), but I couldn't find the thread again.
