    Default freaked out + help for virus

    So, I was doing my average things on my computer when my screen turned white.
    Some FBI moneypak virus showed up.
    Scared the shit out of me.
    Freaking out for 10 minutes then I read some stuff then I figured it was a scam.
    I decided to look on my phone and indeed, it was a virus.
    Anyone know how to remove it?
    Or what I am going to need to do so?

    Download Malwarebytes and let it do its magic. If you can't somehow get that onto your computer, call Microsoft and they'll walk you through uninstalling it. You could also do a factory reset.

    It's ransomware. Designed to trick computer-illiterates into paying to "save" their PC.

    System Restore probably can do the trick and probably won't work.

    Go into safe mode and try to find and get rid of that bitch. A program might be able to remove it too (anti virus or a tdss killer).

    Can't do all of those? Back up whatever you need and install your OS. Wipe out C:\ and all that.

    When you run in safemode, does it still give you the virus pop up?

    Spybot search and destroy. (here is a mirror (less likely to be blocked))

    And the manual update (may be blocked by the virus)
