Follow the steps
1-Update your anti-virus programme(If you dont have a one, get a one!)
2-Make a Full Scan to your computer by that programme
3-If it does not work, buy a new one(Another brand) and try one more time
4-If you have still the same problem, there is a backup thing at your computer. If you are using windows 7, it has to be at your accesories. Choose your day you want to backup and then, your computer will backup itself to days ago and the virus will be gone.

P.S. Mcafee is the best(My opinion)

THAT'S A LIE!! It was on Yahoo News. Do NOT Pay the money, it is a Scam. The only way to remove the virus is to Wipe your hard drive. I recommend you get a new computer.

This is not a regular virus. It was made by a group of scammers/hackers, and it was put on the news. They block your access to the internet, say you have to pay a 300$ fine. Anti virus wont help you here.

Then the last option will go into action, days ago, something just like this happened to me, but it was using adobe programme and it blocked whole my computer. I couldn't close it by CTRL+ALT+DELETE(I think you say mission control or something like that). I couldn't even access to any programme. I override my computer with opening lots of calculator machines(there is a bottom for opening calculator at my keyboard) Then I closed my computer manually and opened it again. I had access to the some programmes but still it was blocking most of functions so I did the backup trick and then it was gone.

To get rid of a computer virus select the option for a full scan. Then, allow time for the procedure of amounting item including the virus. Next, restart your computer to check for any errors or rather check for any malfunctions. Ensure that you always have an antivirus for scanning.

I always try to get on Microsoft updates and run the malicious male ware removal tool to clear mine up.
