I was recently infected with the AFP (austrailan federal police) malware or virus on my laptop. I'm posting this from my desktop.
I was browsing the internet when my screen went white with the AFP information on it demanding payment of $100 or so to an account, my webcam came on (i never use my webcam) so I immediately shutdown the computer.
I run windows xp and not sure on the version of IE maybe 8.
On rebooting my computer the same white screen came up, so I attempted to run in safe mode, but I was unable to, it would just keep reboot. The screen where I chose my method of login in safe mode had changed slightly and I could not log in to safe mode with command prompt.
So in a nutshell:
infected with AFP malware/virus
cant log into safe mode, safemode with networking, or safemode with command prompt
I don't have a windows CD to boot up with, but I have a USB stick I can download something onto and stick in the laptop if that helps.
