I am posting regarding the scam you have covered in this link http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-windows-has-been-block-tech-support-scam
It's the 'Remove the Windows has been Blocked Tech Support Scam'
However, unfortunately I did call the number, and when they wanted money I said absolutely not. Now, when I power up that PC, I get a pop-up that asks for admin password (not the Windows or BIOS popup). I tried command prompt, system restore, and reinstalling windows deleting everything but what was installed and personal files, and still the same popup requesting a password. I tried Esc, and cancel and enter, all not working.
Any suggestions? Any help at all greatly appreciated
