One one my flock has been afflicted with the message
'Police- We have locked your computer for odownloading illicit music- Send us £50 and it will be unlocked.
Its Scam -of course - but he had phoned the police, who told him it was a scam and and advised him to contact his ISP[ TalkTalk] who responded - Nothing to do with us .....
He then phoned me.
So what do we do to 'unlock' the machine ?
Have a look at this comprehensive Guide.
Thank you rdave
I too have sent him a welter of links to look at on his wifes computer

That should keep him busy for a bit.
My brother had a similar thing last week, did a system restore then scanned the laptop all is now well.
