What is the full form of FBI,a "security virus"(12 posts)
If you have this, it is not real.
It is a variant of the Ukash virus.

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!
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.
