My girlfriend lives in a different city and she somehow got this Ransomware demanding $450.

FBI, child porn etc...

So I had her send me her computer through the mail. I started the computer and went to Safe Mode with Networking to attempt the fix described here.

Once I push ENTER for Safe Mode with Networking the screen just goes white.  Nothing...

I've tried again and again... This Toshiba Laptop is only 1 year old !!!

 

What can I do?  Please help... :lmao:

I was able to get to a restore point by using the method advised by ComputerRX in Tomshardware.com Forum.

I tried to copy and paste the link here to no avail. But was allowed to get online and download Malwarebytes.

Running a full scan now and will let you know the outcome...

I will do that Helper24 but right now MalwareBytes is still doing it's Full Scan. It has found 2 infections so far after 36 minutes and counting... 

I'm using my laptop to access this site.

Please do not use the tool suggested by Helper24. At least not until those who are malware removal specialists let you know something about the tool.

Helper24 keeps posting dangerous links. Disregard them.

Thank you for the warning.  I am now just doing a clean re-install.  That way I know her computer will be okay.

I've told her to be more conscientious when getting online.  I never have these problems (knock-on-wood)...

Can anyone suggest a good virus/malware program I don't care if it costs me.  I've always used Microsoft Security Essentials with no problems but I put this on her computer and she still got the FBI Virus...

 

Thanks again...

Install ONE of these:

- Avast! free antivirus: http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

- free Microsoft Security Essentials: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/products/security-essentials
Note for Windows 8 users: Microsoft Security Essentials comes preinstalled and renamed as Windows Defender.
You can keep it or you have to disable it before installing another AV program.  How to...

- free Comodo Antivirus: http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/antivirus.php
 

Keep in mind that no matter what AV program is there it's always about computer user habits.

There is no perfect security program.

Yes, I have always used Microsoft Security Essentials.

Safe internet use is the key...

Thanks for the help.
