I posted this topic over 10 days ago and got a response from the malware response team the next day and have not heard from him since then even after I sent him a PM.  So I will repost my problem again.  Here is the link to the original post with the scans he asked me to run.  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/540350/pop-up-tabs-that-lock-up-my-browser/#entry3417254


I seem to have gotten a virus that is locking up my browser (Chrome & Firefox). I uninstalled Chrome and installed Firefox but I get the same pop up, sometimes in sveral tabs. It wants me to send money and they will unlock my computer (go figure :lol: ). The only way for me to dump out of the browser is through task manager. Very inconsistant about when it happens. No rhyme or reason as to when it happens. Eset doesn't see it. Help would be appreciated.
