Greetings All - Woke up this morning to discover I had an infection on my desktop claiming to be the FBI and demanding $200 to proceed with removal. Are any of you good people familiar with this infection and what can be done to remove it from my system as I'm unable to proceed past it's hijack page. I'm currently running AVG in safe mode to see if that might help. Any advice will be kindly appreciated as this is how I run my business and I am pretty much computer illiterate.

Many Thanks

As you posted a topic in the Malware removal forum as well, I am closing this topic. Please reply in this topic and do not start another topic.
