    Angry Request for an Add On... if poossible

    Im not sure if you already cover this or not. Ive used SBSD for MANY MANY years now and I love it and would never buy any other garbage AV or ASW package from anyone else. That said, my brother is an idiot. Can we get an add on to prevent him from ever getting on the internet again? Okay not gonna be possible... well how about something to block the "F.B.I. Locked Page" hijack? this is the 5th time he has come to my house and dropped of his CPU with no monitor or keyboard or mouse or power cables...NOTHING... and said..."Its broke, I might be in trouble with the FBI"......... ( Insert Long Sigh of Disgust and Disdain Here).

    I assume he is downloading porn which I could judge him for it but I'm an adult male who has genitals so I'm just as guilty as he is of it simply by assumption of facts. (I will say that he is into some WEIRD CRAP though I will spare you all the horrors.) I'm tired of doing this for him and explaining that he doesnt REALLY need to go get a Green Dot card for $395.00 and send it to Zimbabwe to the Ministry of the FBI Scams.

    So hows-a-boutit ? Hmmmm? Anyone? (Crickets.........chirp.....chirp)

    please tell me there is one already or we can get one working yesterday ?

    Thanks for the help

    This sounds like a ransom Trojan which locks the system. Some of them can be dealt with in Windows Safemode. They usually install into the <APPDATA> directory. If Spybot does not find it in Safemode, you can disable the autorun entry with Spybot and get the system running again. If the Trojan prevents the system from going into Safemode, you will have to use a bootable device in order to get rid of the Trojan.
