I got a message while browsing the internet yesterday that my computer had been locked and that it had illegal images/content on the computer. It said I had to send $300 to unlock my computer. I was freaking out at this point and quickly did CTRL ALT DEL and get it restarted without any issue. So I didn't read in great detail what exactly the message was saying.
I ran SuperAntiSpyware and removed whatever it found - which wasn't anything serious - mostly cookies. Then I ran Microsoft Security Essentials and that found two "Exploit" category items. They were labeled as
So I removed both of those via Microsoft Security Essentials.
I've had my computer disconnected from the internet ever since and haven't noticed anything strange but I just have no idea if I am ok at this point or not. My guess is I am not since it is likely not easy to get rid of this stuff. So I am looking for help from you guys.
I am running Windows Vista Home Basic. What can I do to make sure I'm clean?
