Hey guys, I have been experiencing problems with my computer since I got this FBI Moneypack virus. When I tried to access my computer, a page came up saying the FBI locked my computer and wanted me to pay 200 dollars to unlock it. I immediately knew this was a scam. I'm a novice when it comes to computers, so I used my other computer to research how to remove this virus.

Most guides I read told me to start my computer on safe mode or safe mode with networking, but this is where the real problem is. When I attempted to start my computer on safe mode or safe mode with networking, the page still pops up. I can access safe mode command prompt. I read somewhere that I should go to safe mode command prompt, type msconfig and uncheck LOAD STARTUP ITEMS, which did but I still had no progress. I also tried unplugging my computer from the internet and starting it in safe mode, which also didn't work.

Now whenever I try to access my infected computer a screen that says "loading in 30 seconds" comes up, but the fake FBI warning never actual comes up. Iv come to a dead end :wacko:

As I said, I am a novice when it comes to computers, I'm not even sure what antivirus programs I had on the infected computer (which could be the problem). So a detailed walk through would be much appreciated :thumbsup:

Thank you guys

In command prompt,type

regedit and press ENTER

browse to this key

HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Let me know if you have entry called SHELL and also its path


Type this command

reg query "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v Shell


reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v Shell

Let me know the path of SHELL for the both the commands
