If you have this, it is not real.

It is a variant of the Ukash virus.

My post recently; http://www.howtogeek.com/forum.....?replies=1

The new versions are more difficult to erase because you have no access to windows. This means a reinstall of your is the only option.

One hopes that people do back up vital data and image on a regular basis!

Raman, you may want to further elaborate on what it is that you want? Because I don't understand.

Oh and a little word of advice... {whispers} (you may want to lower your tone...the mods here don't like that..)

Have a read here http://www.bleepingcomputer.co.....ransomware

The FBI Online Agent ransomware is a computer infection that locks your screen so that you are unable to access your Windows desktop, programs, or documents until you pay a ransom.

I have cured the FBI virus with the Kaspersky Rescue Disk on several computers no problem, no reload necessary.

Xhi, sorry the only pure cure is reinstall of the OS, it is a rather nasty virus for sure. There are many varieties of this bloody nasty

I also agree with what Xhi says. I've removed it from a couple PC's using Kaspersky Rescue Disk and on another infected pc a Live Linux CD to delete the startup files for the virus so that the PC can boot into Windows. Re-installing the OS completely should always be the last thing you try, and if you know what you're doing to remove the virus/startup files for it you will hardly ever have to.
