How to remove Fake FBI Virus
by HotRoddies58 - 11/10/12 4:04 PM
Running Windows XP on a Dell Dimension 4700. While surfing the Web, suddenly the computer locks up and there is an official looking FBI seal with a written and audible warning that I must send $200 somewhere or I will be arrested in 72 hours due to "illegal" computer activity.
I rebooted and tried running the "Rkill" software that I had used earlier to stop the fake 2012 Windows XP Home Edition Security virus, however, it did not stop it.
Mcafee Antivirus did not stop it, and Superantispyware scans did not remove it.
I have four profiles on the computer and it seems to be only affecting one of them. Hence, I was able to create this discussion.
