I've not had much luck fixing this one, occasionally it is possible to system restore, ie on vista or windows 7, crashing the system, then repeatedly pressing F8 on start to open the selection menu and select "Repair Computer", then restore to an earlier date. Works if the restore points exist, as the change appears to be a registry one that locks you out. On XP the only solution I've had is to format and reload the system.


Wondering as well if there has been any progress with this scam lock; it has been out for a few years now.
