Hi

I got the internet crime complaint virus on 12/19/12 it is not similar to the FBI moneypak scam because screen locks even in safe mode (all 3 safe modes) but I noticed if I go into safe mode & chose Administrator & not the user I usually login in with the virus screen does not appear. I still would like to find out how to wipe out this virus

Thank you very much

Hi

It seems I was able to do restore & remove the virus

I was able to go in safe mode with command prompt as admin instead of my user. I entered at the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe & chose date about 5 days earlier & did restore. When it rebooted I did complete scan of my pc using my ESET software. I am kind of pissed at ESET because I got the Moneypak virus 3 times over the last 5 months. I don't know why they don't catch it
