FBI has locked your computer-MoneyPak required (Ransom Virus Info)

How to Remove Ransomware

Last Updated: July 4, 2012

Ransomware is malicious software that restricts access to a computer until a ransom is paid. It displays a fake warning message and asks you pay a fee to unblock the computer. It will frequently disguise itself as the police or FBI. Ransomware can be difficult to remove; however, it is not impossible. This guide provides instructions on how to remove ransomware from Windows operating system.


Option 1 - Start in Windows Safe Mode
Option 2 - Use HitmanPro's Force Breach Mode
Option 3 - Use a Bootable Antivirus CD

Option 1 - Start in Windows Safe Mode

Certain types of ransomware won't run in safe mode. To start in safe mode, restart your computer and press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. You will see a black screen with a number of options. Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode with Networking option, and then press the Enter key.

If the ransomware doesn't start in safe mode, follow Step 1 and 2 in this malware removal guide (while in safe mode). If the ransomware starts in safe mode, move on to Option 2.

Option 2 - Use HitmanPro’s Force Breach Mode

On another computer, download HitmanPro: Download here (32-bit), (64-bit) - Homepage

Copy the downloaded HitmanPro file to a USB flash drive. After the file is copied, plug the USB flash drive into a USB port of the infected computer. Now press the Ctlr key and the O key together. You should see a window that is similar to the one below. From there, find the USB flash drive and open it. While holding down the left Ctrl key, open the HitmanPro file. Keep the Ctrl key pressed until the HitmanPro window appears. This will stop the ransomware. Then click the Next button. Check the box that says No, I want to perform a one-time scan, and then click Next. Once the scan is complete, click Next. Click Activate free license, and then click Next to remove the ransomware. After you use HitmanPro, follow Step 1 and 2 in this guide to remove any remaining threats.

Option 3 - Use a Bootable Antivirus CD

A bootable antivirus CD can be used to scan your computer for malware without having to boot into Windows. Many antivirus companies provide free bootable CDs. They are extremely effective at removing malware from a computer.
Below are three highly recommended bootable antivirus CDs. I recommend using Kaspersky Rescue Disk.
 Kaspersky Rescue Disk (230 MB) - How to create and use Kaspersky Rescue Disk
 Avira AntiVir Rescue System (240 MB) - How to create and use Avira Rescue CD 
 Dr.Web LiveCD (180 MB) - How to create and use Dr.Web Live CD
  1. Burn the antivirus ISO file onto a CD using CD burning software.
  2. Insert the CD into the infected computer's CD-ROM drive.
  3. Enter the computer's BIOS, set it to boot from the CD, and reboot the computer. How to Boot from a CD
  4. Scan for and remove the ransomware using the bootable CD.
If the above steps don't work, seek expert analysis

Java should disable or uninstall it for now....

  • If you don’t rely on any applications that use Java, and you don’t visit any sites that require Java in the browser, you should just completely remove the entire framework from your computer.
  • If you use applications that require Java, you should disable the plugin in the browser.
  • If you are forced to use Java in the browser for a specific site, you should disable Java in your main browser, and then use an alternate browser just for that one single site.

 How to Uninstall Java Entirely

Just like anything else, you need to head to Control Panel –> Uninstall Programs and uninstall it from there. Find anything else that has Java, JRE, JDK, or anything similar, and click the Uninstall button—it is completely free, so you can easily reinstall it if you really have to.

How to Disable the Java Plugin in Google Chrome

For Google Chrome, head to about:plugins in your browser bar, and then hit the Enter key.

Find Java in the list, and click the Disable button.

How to Disable the Java Plugin in Internet Explorer

Head to the Tools icon, and then use the Manage add-ons item in the menu.

Find the Java plugin in the list, click on it, and then click the Disable button. You’ll notice that this screenshot illustrates how to remove LastPass, but the same idea works for both.

How to Disable Java in Mozilla Firefox

Open up the Firefox menu and then click the Add-ons button.

Find everything that says Java in the name, and then disable it.

Want classic Windows Desktop on Windows 8? Here's how to boot to it....

The developer of Classic Shell has just released an update for the program that takes care of another annoyance that some Windows 8 users may experience. Windows 8 by default boots into the Metro startpage which may not be a issue for some, but for users who only work on the desktop, it may be just an added step before they can start to work. When Windows 8 users update to or install the new version of Classic Shell, they may notice that Metro is skipped automatically on startup.
This works very similar to the manual workaround that we have posted at the beginning of the month. You do see the Metro screen for a second or two before the switch is automatically made to the desktop.
classic shell skip metro
You can disable the option in the Classic Shell preferences if you do not want to skip Metro on start of Windows 8. Please note that Metro is still fully enabled, which means that you can still open the startpage from the Charms menu. The Windows-key on the other hand opens the start menu and does not switch to the Metro interface anymore.
Depending on how Classic Shell is configured on the system, the program may be updated automatically on next start up, or may require you to download the new version to install it manually on the system. (via Techdows)
