I was wondering what game site you were playing on? Also are you using Wifi? Not sure if the game site issue is allowed in public forum so ok to send me info via PM. I need no personally identifiable data about you, just have a lot of people having the oddest issues, and may be related to game sites that require pop-up blockers disabled and other similar lowering of security on systems to play.
I think I've got a virus on my laptop..The vitals are: Acer Laptop/Mdl # KAWG0, OS is Windows 7 Home Premium/Manuf. Date: 09/11.
I was playing an online poker game, when a blue screen appeared and then a white screen immediately after, saying "FBI" and said I was "locked out" and in a nutshell, if I "paid a $200 Pay Release Fee, made payable to "Green Dot MoneyPak , my computer would be unlocked. It stated that it was locked because of illegal downloaded material located on my computer and that by doing so, were reproduced, therefore involving a criminal offense.
Normally when a suspicious window of some sort appears, I would right click on my start bar and go to the task mgr, to end the program first. In this case, this message filled the entire screen and I had no way of doing so..it appeared very suddenly and took over, so to speak?
I've heard of this virus running rampad and I do have Microsoft Security Essentials installed on my laptop, but as I stated, I was left with no options, at least that I could see. Now when I boot up, a blue screen appears, then the white screen with the same FBI message. I would sure appreciate any suggestions anyone could offer to get this off my laptop!
Thanks in advance!
