    trouble at mill

    Good morning ...is this GENUINE or a scam / virus
    my 11 year old grandson was on my wifes Laptop last night around 9pm
    this is what is on the page - THE ONLY PAGE THAT SHOWS WHEN YOU NOW TURN ON THE LAPTOP

    Cheshire Police Authority United Kingdom Police
    Attention
    Your PC is blocked because of the reasons specified below
    You have been violating copyright law( music , video ,Software ) and illegaly using or distributing copyright content,thus infringing Article 128 of the Criminal Code .

    You have been viewing or distributing prohibited pornography (child porn ,zoophilla and etc )

    then a load of gobblygook ...then in large green letters

    YOU HAVE BEEN FINED £100 PLEASE PAY YOUR FINE THROUGH UKASH or PAYSAFE ......
    then tells you how to get an account through UKASH / PAYSAFE ...

    Is this a scam - has the Laptop now got a virus - is it genuine ??...if it`s genuine - why would Cheshire Police and not Merseyside Police block the Laptop - as I live in Liverpool.??

    I CANNOT GET THIS PAGE OFF - AND I CAN`T GET ONLINE .....I am using my laptop to post this request for help
    thanks for reading ...ANY advice appreciated
    ...
    I think my grandson is in for it when he gets up ...my wife has steam coming out of her ears

    It's a known SCAM/VIRUS

    I'll see if I can find instructions for removal. Back in a mo!

      Allan - just put the first part of the message into google and you will see lots of instructions for removal.

      Basically you will need to start your computer in SAFE mode and then run virus & malaware scans.

      Might be wise to tell grandson not to bother getting up today as well!

              I do hope grandson is sharing his Easter eggs with grandma today as a way of an apology!

                  ANY demand for payment which you do not anticipate (such as an online purchase) is 99.9999% certain to be a scam or a virus. Neither the police, your bank, the NHS nor the government would operate like this.

                  Incidentally, don't assume it is the grandson who has brought about the infection. Some viruses are delayed-action. (I haven't looked at this one).
