Hi Folks,

I have been a longtime lurker here and over the years have solved a few problems by reading the various posts. You guys are truly the greatest at what you do, and are so helpful. Well, I have a laptop running Windows 7, that has been infected with a Department of Defense Virus (Similar to the FBI vurus)that is holding my computer for ransom.

I have tried a few fixes, but I am stumped with this one. Can you help me?

Thanks!
