    I have to admit I was looking at porn like most 28 year olds , nothing sinister might I add, when the ” your computer has been Been blocked” page appeared and my computer froze. After reading the screen and seeing all the official logos that are widely known here in the UK needless to say my heart sank big time. Omg am I going to get arrested thrown in jail and appear in all the papers for something I haven’t done.
    I really started to shut myself, clicking all the buttons possible trying to free the computer, nothing happens so I turned it off then on God knows how many times and it still hadn’t worked now I start thinking about telling my wife and my family about me looking at porn and may get arrested and everything.

    1thing left to do restart the computer press f8 and laterally start the computer from fresh as in back to factory standard, well at least it turns on and cooperates 1 thing left is to wait for the nick at their door

    I spent all night worrying nearly having panic attack and every thing but managed to get some sleep.
    The following morning it’s still fresh on my mind but keep a brave face any way come the evening I decide to google the words ukash and low and behold the first thing that comes up is ukash virus.

    How relieved was I to see those words, but all night I was thinking to my self if I was doing illegal stuff the police won’t want me to pay a fine and that’s it and they certainly won’t warn me that they are building a case against me in 72 hrs, I could get rid of the evidence or leave the country by then so my suspicion s were correct but not without the worrying night and day worrying.

    So needless to say I have learnt my lesson and won’t be looking at porn again well for a long time anyway and will be informing every about this virus as I wouldn’t want any one to feel like I did.
