Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
This is ransomware.  It bypassed my Trendmicro antivirus and
firewall.  It really raises hell and asks you to pay about $75 to get
rid of it.  I got it while my laptop was on and idle on 12/23/2011.
MY os is Vista Home edition.

So restart  using the start menu and before the Windows label appears
press and hold F8
This will take you to the safe mode.
toggle down using your down arrow key
open in safe mode with the command prompt.
At the command prompt trype rstrui.exe
This will allow you to restore to an earlier version.
If you do not have a restore point I don't know what you do!

Research indicates this malware is loaded after downloading a fake
Adobe Flash player update.

Thank you for the suggestion to use System Restore in Safe Mode it is one way to
deal with
this rogue utility.  Hust as easily you can find the loading point of this
malware, stop
it from loading and reboot into Normal Mode, run Unhide (if needed) and then run
Malwarebytes' to remove and any other associated trojans.

A fake Adobe Flash update is just one of many ways this Trojan can get
installed.  All
will tend to use Social Engineering.

However, it is not a virus as you claimed in the subject of this post.
