I have caught a virus that locks my desktop with a web page or impostor that threatens me to pay otherwise my machine will be locked. I cant open task manager or anything, i even try to open windows as safe mode. Don't work.


What can i do


Thanks in advance


NB: The infection seems to be a ransomware with name : Rogue Antispy-AH


From a live cd i run ROguekiller. It seems to clean it but another scan by this tool get me a folder not found error in iexplore /shell/



Update: I finally manage to clean the ransomware buy using rootkiller in Safe mode. Before my first usage of Roguekiller the block existed in the safe mode too.

Thanks anyway. I would write here for people who will suffer the same fate.
