FBI Reloadit Pack virus really drives me nuts!!!! It completely blocks my computer and I cannot do anything on it. This virus asks me to pay a fine of $300 to unlock my PC but I have never done that because I know it is just a hoax. I have tried everything I can do to get rid of it but still get no luck to unlock my computer. When I started the computer regularly, it took over my computer after I entered my password. I tried to restart in safe mode with networking, however, once the desktop was loaded, the computer automatically restarted into regular mode. I have tried a couple of times and still ended up with the same result. It makes me frustrated. Is there any way I can remove this virus completely?
