A few hours ago my laptop was infected with Ukash virus (OS: Win7). I was trying to download music from fileshare when it happened. Basically a message blocked my computer which said in Spanish that the Spanish police (I'm in Spain) has found illegal, child and animal pornography content on my computer. I have 24 hours to pay 100 euros or all of my files will be deleted. And it says I can pay with Ukash or Paysafecard. And it also gives me the options where I can buy them in Spain, plus the space for entering the PIN if I bought the card.

Fortunately I can use my computer as an administrator so I can look for help. I couldn't print screen the message, but here is a similar, with the French police that I found:

Thanks a lot for any help!!

Hello, this is a bogus scam,but difficult to remove.
We need a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
