    Met police ukash virus, please help! Hey guys, I am a PC newb and I was just streaming the walking dead the show when all the sudden this white screen popped up saying "ATTENTION!!!" and that I have been looking at child porn and have been involved in terrorist activity. It showed me IP adress and ctiy and said i need to pay £100 via UKASH to unlock my computer. It won't let me log on, If i turn my comp off then on again after about 3 seconds of being on my desktop it goes to the screen again. I have no idea where it came from but its worrying. I have looked it up and the UKASH virus looks bad, what do I do/???/ I need to get rid of it!

    heyya jembaa, welcome to TSG. I've edited your post for vulgarity, please remember this is a family site. :)

    If you could go here and follow the instructions, we will try to get a security expert around to help you shortly. They are usually pretty busy, so if you don't have an answer by this time tomorrow morning, please type 'bump' in the quick response box.

    thanks,
