As the title, 2 days ago I got an RCMP Ukash Ransomeware/Malware lockscreen. I believe I have gotten rid of this stupid thing but would just like some reassurance or advice. I'll share my experience and then I have a couple questions at the end .
So I get this stupid lockscreen right before I am ready for bed, yay! As it pops up I poo a little...haha no, I restart and I am presented with the same screen when I log in. I restart once again and enter safe mode. While in safe mode I run a full scan with my anti-virus which is Norton 360. It finds 19 tracking cookies and deletes them. I run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, quick scan and full system scan both come back with zero findings. Next up I system restore to a few days earlier when I know my computer was fine.
I can now log in to windows normally. I then run full scans again with the following programs, Norton, Malwarebytes, Hitman pro 3, and Roguekiller. All come back with zero findings, except hitman pro found some more tracking cookies and deletes them. Restart again and do the same process zero findings.
I then check youtube for any more tips, I follow a couple videos and delete a few files. Next I try Norton's power eraser, that comes back with zero findings.
And that brings me to where I am now. My computer seems to be as it was before.
Am I missing something or is this thing gone? Is my computer safe (would it be foolish to do some online shopping)? is there another way to make sure this damn thing is gone?
Thanks in advance.
