Welcome to the forum, chev65ss
There is a ransomware hijacker masked as US Department of Justice warnings about illegal activities on your computer, but, these are fake
warnings. Please do not provide any monetary gain to this scheme!
Is it possible for you to boot into the Directory Services Restore Mode
You can do so by restarting the computer.
- As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears.
- Select: Directory Services Restore Mode
- The computer engages in a few processes, and finally takes you to a type of Safe Mode with Networking mode with capabilities to download programs.
Next, please do the following...
Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Save to the Desktop.
MBAM may make changes to the Registry as part of its disinfection routine.
If using other security programs that detect Registry changes, they may interfere or alert you.
Permit them to allow the changes.
When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
Make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
MBAM automatically starts and you are asked to update
If an update is found, the program automatically updates itself.
Press the OK
button to close that box and continue.
On the Scanner
Make sure the Perform Full Scan
option is selected.
Then click on the Scan
If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all
the drives selected.
Click on the Start Scan
The scan may take some time to complete, so please be patient.
When the scan is finished, a message box shows The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found
to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner
Click on the Show Results
button to see a list of any malware found.
Make sure that everything is checked, and click: Remove Selected
When removal is completed, a report opens in Notepad.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs
Please copy/paste the entire contents of the MBAM report
in your reply.
Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you are asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the
disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) prevents MBAM from removing all the malware.
Also download DDS
Save to the Desktop
Once again, if using security programs, they may interfere or alert you. Please permit them to allow the changes.
Windows 7: Right-click DDS and select 'Run as Administrator'
When done, DDS
opens two logs:
-DDS.txt (Opens on the Desktop)
-Attach.txt (Minimized on the TaskBar)
Please post both reports
(do not attach) in your reply.
