I got rid of it - but it left damage
about a month ago I got hit with the FBI Ransom Malware I turned off the computer immediatly and used my laptop to research what to do -- one suggestion was do a safe mode boot and run the antivirus-but when I tried it immediately went back to the ransom screen from safe mode -- I tried several other suggestions that didn't work. Then I found one that did and if you get hit with it immediately shut down the computer and note the time, then boot to command prompt only--go to C:\Program files\Prefetch and run dir and notice the time stamp on the files delete the one or more that has a time stamp of the time your were hit and then exit the command prompt and do a reboot to safe mode and run your antivirus--I ran Avast, then Malaware Bytes and then AML Registry Cleaner and I had a clean desktop I also went back to the Command Prompt and ran the sfc \scannow and it fixed 18 corrupted files. It ran pretty good after that but a couple of installed programs kept freezing up so I finally reinstall a harddrive image made about 6 months ago.
