So I recently fell victim to what a Google search told me is the "FBI Moneypack" "ransom" virus that's been going around. It wasn't this exact screenshot for me but it looked something like it:
I booted my computer in safe mode, read some literature, downloaded the free version of Malwarebytes, and ran a scan which found some files it deleted. I rebooted normally and, thank god, everything's fine now, the screen's gone and I'm typing this from said malware'd computer. My question is, do you advise anything I do anything else? I just ran another malwarebytes scan, which turned up negative, and I'm currently running another standard MS Security Essentials system scan. In the event that everything seems fine and ends up back to normal, should I still take any other actions or consult a (real-life) tech help pro? Thanks a lot!
