    I have a laptop that is infected with the Internet Crime Complaint Center virus. I am on my office’s PC right now, not the infected computer. I need a little assistance getting this virus off. I was following your video yesterday, but got lost. I was communicating with another tech person on your site, but was not able to go on line with my lap top because I didn’t know the security code. I had to ask someone today, so I am ready. First I have to turn the computer on and get it into safe mode right?

    A few days ago a pop up appeared on my laptop. It says it is the internet crime complaint center department of federal bureau of investigation. My camera activated and it showed my location underneath my image. It also said for a $500 moneypak fine to be paid within 72 hours. Is this legit?

  12. RE says:

    Hi, I performed this removal and it worked perfectly, except that I think there is a possibility that I have deleted something from the registry editor that I was not supposed to?

    My computer is running fine now and there is no trace left of the virus except that now my desktop is completely black, my taskbar, start menu, folders, and programs (probably among other things) all look vintage, like they come from a much older version than my current Windows 7.How can I fix this?

  13. D_Trewth says:

    @ RE

    You have to manually change your desktop theme from the control panel.I had to do that like 4 times after realizing that this FBI thing was a virus and just restarted my computer to unfreeze it.It would turn back on looking vintage or sometimes “invisible” for me, of which I had to navigate my desktop completely from memory because no words were to be found, only the windows themselves.That was an adventure, indeed.

  14. Aaron says:

    I can get into safe safe mode but whenever I log into any user the virus still pops up. I can’t do anything but turn my laptop off. So what should I do?
