Hey, so today I logged on to our home computer and a message popped up. It had the FBI, CIA, etc and said that our computer was locked. It was apparently locked due to suspicion of illegal activity. I used my iPod to see if this was indeed a virus and it turns out it was a trojan, I think. That's pretty scary for me because I know trojans are for accessing someone's system and for our computer to have it definitely terrified me. Windows Task Manager was disabled, because of the virus, too. I did a scan with your program and it removed the trojan. Windows Task Manager worked again as well. I would like more information about this certain virus, if you guys have ever heard of it. Also, how exactly could it have been sent to our computer? I would really like to know that. I want to make sure we weren't already hacked. And are we safe from any attackers? The virus is removed, but I'm worried if damage was already done or can still be done with the virus having been there previously. Any advice on how I can prevent this? I'm really not so sure about our computer being safe, because in the past I've also said on these forums that there were programs opening by themselves.
One last thing I'd like to mention. A few days before this happened, I was on a Minecraft server....
I got disconnected and I couldn't connect to any other servers. Then a window popped up saying Windows Firewall was concerned about the program. Could this have to do with Java, or possibly lead up to this trojan?
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I appreciate it.
