Computer totally locked by virus or malware scam

  1. I saw an alert from my anti-virus just seconds before this screen came on that says " Your computer has been blocked" "The United States Department of Justice" . They want me to get a money pak and pay them $300.00 and get my computer unlocked and prevent further prosecution. It claims it is due to pornography of children under 18. I know this is a scam because there has been no porn viewed at all at anytime. Surely someone knows what this is and how to fix it. Conventional methods are not working. As soon as I reboot, before I can run any virus scan this whole page comes back up blocking everything. I cannot even access the task manager. Someone please help!!

    Hi there!

    Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

    Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.

    Depending on your type of system, you will have to select 32-bit or 64-bit accordingly. How do I tell?

    Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.

    Enter System Recovery Options.

    To enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:
    • Restart the computer.
    • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until Advanced Boot Options appears.
    • Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item.
    • Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
    • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
    • Select your user account and click Next.
    To enter System Recovery Options by using Windows installation disc:
    • Insert the installation disc.
    • Restart your computer.
    • If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check your BIOS settings.
    • Click Repair your computer.
    • Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
    • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
    • Select your user account an click Next.
    On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:
      • Startup Repair
        System Restore
        Windows Complete PC Restore
        Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
        Command Prompt
    • Select Command Prompt
    • In the command window type in notepad and press Enter.
    • The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
    • Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.
    • In the command window type e:\frst.exe and press Enter
      Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
    • The tool will start to run.
    • When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
    • Place a check next to List Drivers MD5 as well as the default check marks that are already there
    • Press Scan button. It will do its scan and save a log on your flash drive.
    • Close out of the message after that, then type in the text services.exe in to the "Search:" text box. Then, press the Search file(s) button, just as below:
      When done searching, FRST makes a log, Search.txt, on the C:\ drive or on your flash drive.
    • Type exit in the Command Prompt window and reboot the computer normally
    • FRST will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive and also the search.txt logfile, please copy and paste the logs in your reply.

    I didn't know you had Windows, let's do this:

    OTLPE + Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

    • Download OTLPENet.exe to your desktop
    • Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.
    • Ensure that you have a blank CD in the drive
    • Double click OTLPENet.exe and this will then open imgburn to burn the file to CD
    • Reboot your system using the boot CD you just created.
    Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here
    • As the CD needs to detect your hardware and load the operating system, I would recommend a nice cup of tea whilst it loads [​IMG]
    • Your system should now display a Reatogo desktop.
    Note : as you are running from CD it is not exactly speedy
    • Insert the flash drive with FRST on it
    • Locate the flash drive and run FSRT
    • The tool will start to run.
    • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
    • Press Scan button. It will do its scan and save a log on your flash drive.
    • Close out of the message after that, then type in the text services.exe in to the "Search:" text box. Then, press the Search file(s) button, just as below:
      When done searching, FRST makes a log, Search.txt, on the C:\ drive or on your flash drive.
    • Type exit in the Command Prompt window and reboot the computer normally
    • FRST will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive and also the search.txt logfile, please copy and paste the logs in your reply.

    I am in the process of what you want but keep in mind this virus locks me out of everything. The only way I can get control is to reboot in safe mode and very very quickly open task manager and watch for the "user exe." file to stop from running. If I am not fast enough it will go to the scam screen. This is why we can't see the exe. file that needs deleting because I have already stopped it from runnning by the time I ran the scan. I understand what you want and I will try to get it done. Please understand I have very limited access, spotty at best. I do understand your request and if it does what I think you want it to do then it will record the file we want to delete. Anyway, I am learning so I am doing what you ask at the moment, give me a little time. It locks me out if I am not very quick.

    FRST Fixlist

    Please download attached fixlist.txt below, and save it to your flash drive in the same location as FRST.exe. Make sure it maintains the same name, otherwise the fix will fail.

    NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system

    Now, please enter OTLPE as earlier...

    Run FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait.
    The tool will make a log on the flashdrive (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

    Now restart, let it boot normally and tell me how it went.

    Good job so far. :)

    You are amazing. I know that I am an amateur at these things but so far it seems to be fixed. I have fixed a couple of small virus's before on my own but this one was terrible. Thank you again and here is the log just in case something is still not right.

    Excellent work!

    Let's do the following in Normal Mode to make sure we get all of the crap out of the system. :)

    ComboFix scan

    Please download ComboFix[​IMG] by sUBs
    From TechSpot

    Direct Link (alternative)

    Please save the file to your Desktop.

    Important information about ComboFix

    After the download:
    • Close any open browsers.
    • Very Important: Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results". Please visit here if you don't know how.
    • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
    • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until ComboFix has completely finished.
    • If there is no Internet connection after running ComboFix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    Running ComboFix:
    • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
    • When ComboFix finishes, it will produce a report for you.
    • Please post the report, which will launch or be found at "C:\Combo-Fix.txt" in your next reply.
    Troubleshooting ComboFix

    Safe Mode:

    If you still cannot get ComboFix to run, try booting into Safe Mode, and run it there.

    (To boot into Safe Mode, tap F8 after BIOS, and just before the Windows
    logo appears. A list of options will appear, select "Safe Mode.")


    If this doesn't work either, try the same method (above method), but try to download it again, except name
    ComboFix.exe to iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, or winlogon.exe.

    Malware is known for blocking all "user" processes, except for its whitelist of system important processes such as iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, winlogon.exe.

    NOTE: If you encounter a message "illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion" and no programs will run - please just reboot and that will resolve that error.

    Thank you again. I have been using the laptop normally but a little vervously since this is the worst mal-ware I have ever run across. I think it is obvious that it is a scam to get money out of naive people and after reading info provide from a google search it seems that a lot of people actually paid the money and were still left with a locked up computer. Kinda makes you wonder just what they might have been doing online to feel guilty about doesn't it? Thanks again with all my heart, I would send you a contribution but I don't have it right now. Tell me how to donate some money that will actually get to you and compensate you and I will send some when I can in a week or so because you didn't pressure me into money for helping only let it be known that compensation was available. That tells me you are a decent man who will help even expecting nothing in return. All seems to work ok so far. please tekk me if the log says something else needs doing. I am going to put bit defender on all my computers. It seems to be the highest rated product in it's dept. Thanks again. I am using Avast for now and it works will enough but not for these really nasty virus's

    Thanks for the compliment. See my signature below, which provides a blue link to my donation page. That will allow it to go straight to my private account at

    Do you want to check for any remnants? A couple more scans can be in order. It's your choice...

    I have been running anti-virus scans and mal-ware scana out the wazoo all night I think we cleaned that up and much more. I won't forget you next week when I get paid. I am going to have to start another thread in a different section. It seems that my HP laptoop is too bad to repair and what I need is some really good software to pull out my Microsoft word 2007 key so when I re-install it with an OEM disc I will still get full function. I already have the key for Windows 7 pro on the COA sticker, I really wanted 7 ultimate but I guess I will have to settle for pro until I can upgrade. Anyway if you see my post in that area and want to answer please do because you turned one of my worst nightmares into not so bad a job. I am going to install bit defender on all my computers. It seems to have the highest ratings now. Thanks again and I won't forget you you, you just have to give me to about the 27th. of this month. I am a sub-contractor and my pay schedule is crazy.
