I would like to get some help removing a Ransomware infection. The symptom includes displaying the following image after logging in.
Furthermore, any attempts to bypass, e.g. ctrl+alt+del have been disabled. Task manager has also been disabled.
I have tried the removal procedure detailed on this page without success. Most likely due to the fact that booting to safe mode with cmd prompt only logs in to a local account and not to a domain. Any other boot modes will bring up the "locked" screen or an attempt to bring up the screen. I also noticed that the ransomware will infect other profiles.
I also attempted to start fresh and reinstall XP, but either this computer does not boot from a CD/DVD in a normal fashion or the ransomware is more pervasive than I've previously encountered. In case it is needed the computer I'm working on is a Dell Vostro 230.
Thanks in advance for any help provided.
