I just logged onto my 6 day old laptop about an hour ago. I wasn't running for more than a minute when my screen shifted to a full screen with "Interpol" insignias and a notice "ATTENTION! Your computer has been blocked up for safety reasons listed below."

The reasons listed include downloading child porn, pirating music, video, warez [sic]. As you might imagine all of the cited reasons are bogus.

It advises that I can "unblock" my computer by paying a 300$[sic] penalty by MoneyPak at 7/11 or CVS or Rite Aid etc. it warns that the "penalty" must be paid within 48 hours or they'll me into the authorities.

Does anybody know what this is and how to resolve it?
