    Hi All,

    I have a computer that got the FBI Virus and has locked me out. I can sign in but it goes right to the white screen of the FBI Virus and I can't do anything. I have tried going through safe mode both regular and with networking but get the same result. I took out the hard drive and hooked it up to my computer and ran a malware bytes scan on it but it seemed to find nothing. I am running another virus scan and malwarebytes with updated definations now. Does anyone else have any other suggestions on how to get rid of this nasty one. I can't get into the registery or anything. Thanks for any help.

    I have updated malwarebytes and ran the scan again but it still says it has found 0 objects. Once I log into the comptuer whether its in safe mode or regular mode I get a white screen that says it will take about 30 seconds to load then I get the FBI screen. This is the FBI virus that says I need to pay $200 to unlock. Has anyone had this issue?
