Hi, I have another computer and it has been infected by the police virus (Spanish Version). I have looked for a solution but having a hard time because I can't logged in as ADMIN because the screen has been locked by the police virus. Please HELP!!! :(

That was going to be the next step, but i didnt want to offer this as a step if they have no means to make a rescue.

yes The link that xpcman shared is correct, if you have the means to make a disk. You may have to a freinds house to prepare all the materials. If you do not have the knowledge to make a disk, then start with learing to burn an ISO. then got to the link xpcman shared in the above reply. That link will explain all of the directions.

I hope this gives you some direction.

It is fine, a usb stick will work. As long as you are able to go through the instructions described in earleir post. Read all the way through before you commit, and if you have any questions, ask prior to going forward. Thanks to Ambucias for the manual help!

Hi BCN

If you can, try this:

Command prompt

Type regedit click enter

Go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER
\Software
\Microsoft
\Windows NT
\CurrentVersion
\Winlogon

click left on winlogon , right pane , delete the shell value

return to the black window and type

shutdown -r

the pc should start normally

Good luck

Hi Ambucias, I know that you are coming for me :)

Btw, I have tried it as a GUEST and in the cmd prompt screen I typed shutdown -r and it gives me the ff mssg:

The operation completed successfully. A required privilege is not held by the client.

That is the virus known in the US as the FBI virus. Look up FBI virus on a friends computer. They have changed the virus, so it is harder to delete, but if you can get into the machine before it boots windows, you should be able to select a date earlier than the virus appeared to reset your windows, and that scrubbed it for me.

If my solution has not worked, Louis' solution above is the best and the only one short of reformating.

This FBI, Gendarmerie, police virus is one where desinfection methods have yet to be found. All virus/security experts are just shaking their heads in dispair.

Sorry

Hi louis, yes they changed it and I looked for police windows and fbi but then I can't find them. As what I have written above I can't accessed it as an ADMIN. I have followed ambucias direction but still I can see the POLICE VIRUS laughing right on my face :(
