I had some FBI Ransomware pop-up last night on my computer. Started in safe mode with command prompt. Scanned with Microsoft Essentials. I found an Aleuron virus, cleaned it out. From there I restarted the computer in safe mode with command prompt again & rescanned.
Woke up this afternoon, didn't find anything with the second scan. Tried to restart windows normally, goes to desktop for about 2 seconds then a white screen. I can ctrl+alt+delete & log off user etc. However, I unable to do anything from the desktop due to the white screen. So, I attempted to restart in safe mode with networking. When I do this the computer automatically restarts windows normally. Didn't catch it and came back after a minute to the Ransomware being back up with a new picture from the webcam.
MSE says I have:
I've located some of the images in the Ransomware as well as some additional files created at the same time in: c:\user\<current user>\appdata\temp
Widows 7 btw, sorry.
So right now I'm rerunning MSE in safe mode with command prompt & that's where I'm at. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance to everybody.
