I got the FBI screen asking for $200. I figured this was a scam as the computer only has work related items and files.

Shut the computer off and when it rebooted still had the screen. Ran a startup repair and restored last settings and it was gone. If you can log on in safe mode, go to internet options and reset your home page.

then run a trojan removal program or malware killer. Do not pay those a******s.

I had the same experience as Gina and Steve. It started with a pop-up, and the screen could not be minimized or closed.

It had all the look of an FBI page, telling me to pay $200 through MoneyPak to unlock my PC "in 1 to 48 hours after payment is received." Somehow it had my IP address, my correct ISP, my geographic location and it even - I don't know how - had a live (real time) video of me sitting at my PC.

I rebooted but it was still there. I was able to start in Safe Mode, but that didn't correct anything. Fortunately I have a second user on my PC and when I logged in using that it didn't show.

That allowed me to run a virus scan (I use Avast) which, sure enough, detected about sixty infected folders and files.

After dealing with those, I ran a System Restore to two days earlier and the problem's been gone ever since (knock wood). I'm back to being able to log in as myself.

:( my other computer is currently locked with a greendot virus stating (with a FBI symbol) That we downloaded illegal mp3's, et.c and need to pay 200 via Greendot to the FBI through whatever site it is locked on. They put a Mcafee logo too trying to make it legit.

WTF!?!?! I CAN NOT EVEn START MY CPU IN SAFE MODE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
