My Vostro 1500 laptop (Windows XP) has been infected with that virus, and I don't know exactly what to do. Most of the tutorial videos on YouTube about getting rid of the virus are for Windows 7 and don't help at all. I have been able to go into safemode, but have found no good instruction on what to do next. The other thing is, I seem to have the splash screen that is a bit different than others I have seen on-line. It reads in part,"Threat of Prosecution Reminder". How do I disable and delete the virus?


Thank you so much in advance...

I suppose I will just try and follow the guide 'Remove the FBI MoneyPak Ransomware or the Reveton Trojan'. The splash screen for the virus looks a bit different than seen in the guide, which is why I am a bit hesitant, but it will hopefully still work..?

Can you copy it to a Flash drive off another PC and run it?

Thank you for that (couldnt think at the moment). I did so, and Ive come to a problem (if it is anyway. I downloaded it, unzipped, started the Emsisoft, but when it asked to update it and I said yes, it said it wasn't able to connect to the internet... which I knew in the first place. Is it okay to run everything without being able to update it? Thanks so much for your input.

BLEEPING computer is right. So I updated the Emsisoft on a clean computer with access to internet, copied it to the infected computer in safemode and all was going well. It took the computer (with an external hard drive hooked up to it) well over an hour finish going through the scan. It showed the many trojans and what not and when it ended, I clicked quarantine, just as your web-site's guide said to. I then restarted the computer, logged in and.... the Moneypak virus was still there. So I decide to do it again in safemode without the external hard drive and go into safemode..... a minute into the whole mess, the virus pops up in safemode!!! I'm sure I have no other options than to take it in to a professional. Thanks again for your the help, I guess its all hit and miss for people such as myself.
