Just serviced another PC with MoneyPad only now it doesn't just show the lock picture, static or a webcam pic but an actual instance of child porn! Despicable. This time they aren't asking for $200 but instead its $4.95 and a subscription service. I fear that with the lowered price more people may actually bite on this one.
Safe mode used to work but now both safe mode and 'command prompt only' are being locked. I found "Kaspersky's Windows Unlocker" (easy to find) software which works good so far. It can be loaded on a CD or thumb drive.
One thing I'm concerned about. This actually put an instance of child porn on the PC. I cleaned it and have my records of the service call. Is there anything else I should do on my clients behalf? I know there are practices the local university goes through in such a case but I don't know the specifics.
