My first thought is to disconnect the affected computer from the internet immediately. Physically remove the connection.

Questions:
  • Are you able to boot into either normal or safe mode?
  • Have you noticed any other problems?
  • When did this start happening, and what was done on the computer just before?
  • What is your operating system?

Do you remember what you were doing just before this happened? Sites visited? Links clicked etc.?

Also, do you have any security programs installed? If so, what are they?
