I read the tutorial. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-fbi-anti-piracy-warning-ransomware but it says to use a Emisisoft Malware cleaner.. My question is will MBAM clean this infection as I ran it on my wifes computer and it seems to have removed it with a quick scan. I'm doing a full scan now... Is this a rootkit that I need a rootkit killer for ? Please help ?

As long as you boot into safe mode with networking,then run RKill ..either should work at removing all the files.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
