Fbi Moneypak Virus Help!!?

First thing to try is to run RKill. The first link below discusses how it works. The second discusses some of the ransomware viruses it will remove. You will need another puter to download RKill and malwarebytes. You will need both of them on a thumb drive, DVD or a CD. Read the instruction carefully on how to use the programs together. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-re... http://www.malwarebytes.org/

If all else fails you will need to try to recover your data and files. Go to the link below and read on how to download a Linux Live CD to boot the system to recover what you want. If you have a Windows 8 puter then you need to turn of secure boot before using the CD. The live CD will also allow you to check out the rest of the puter. It helps to have a thumb drive or a external drive to copy your data and files to.

After you get your data backed up and you have a brand name puter and a recovery partition then you can use the link below to get to the BIOS menu to restore it back to factory settings. When you press the power button start tapping the F key that is for your puter and the BIOS menu will open. Select the recovery and it will set your puter back to factory settings. Depending on your puter this will take one to two hours.

Manufacturers BIOS menu F key

HP/Compaq ESC

Sony F2

ASUS Del

Gateway, eMachines F10

Acer, Dell, Fijitsu, Gigabyte, Toshiba F12

Your BIOS menu should look something like this. Yours might be different. I am posting this to give you an idea of what it looks like.

F1 = System Info

F2 = System Diagnostic

F9 = Boot Device options

F10 = BIOS Setup

F11 = System recovery

Follow TWB's instructions above. I'd also like to add the following:

WARNING:

The identified infections is a backdoor trojan/rootkit http://www.geekstogo.com/190/what-is-a-b...

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

If the infected computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, you should immediately disconnect it from the Internet until your system is cleaned. ALL passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. You should change each password by using a clean computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. If using a router, you will need to reset it with a strong logon/password so the malware cannot gain control before connecting again. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified as soon as possible due to the possibility of the security breach.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

Because your computer was compromised please read the following links:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud? http://www.dslreports.com/faq/10451

When should I re-format? How should I reinstall? http://www.dslreports.com/faq/10063

Please read the following links to educate yourself and prevent from getting reinfected in the future:

Yes, if you can access safe mode and there is no rootkit.


No in other cases.
