Got a computer in today with that FBI Scareware crap that locks out the computer from use. Now, I scanned with Malwarebyets, Combofix and HitmanPro, and none of them found this one. This is the first time I encountered one that hasn't been caught before. I need help getting rid of this.

I will post more information as needed.

Tdss Killer found nothing. I forgot to mention I ran that one already. I will run avast's method too for a second opinion.

I will be doing the other scans now. Give me an hour or so.

ESET found nothing, avast anti rootkit found nothing. Bitdefender boot disk found nothing.
However, I still love kaspersky, so I downloaded their standard anti-virus removal tool and that found it and rid of the issue.

I am letting everyone know this looks like an updated version of that FBI RansomWare crap, or a new release of it. I'll update the thread with what kaspersky calls this threat. Use Kaspersky to rid of it. It is the only known solution to my knowledge at this time.

Do not run any other tools when you are being assisted.Do you still need help?
