If Malwarebytes cann't help completely remove the ransomware, you can try using SpyHunter and then performing the System Restore.

SOURCE: PC won't Start windows normally

You can attempt to undo this through the use of System Restore.

I am going to assume you are on Windows XP, So start your computer in safe mode without networking.

Once you are in the desktop you are going to use System Restore. Choose a date in time on your computer before the incident happened.

For more information on the system restore utility go here:

Note : If you have Windows Vista ,read about this utility here:

SOURCE: System Restore Not working

Try doing System Restore in Safe Mode.
1. Reboot system
2. Press F8 repeatedly on the Dell screen
3. Select Safe Mode [enter]
4. Select the OS [enter]
5. Wait till all "multidisks" files complete
6. Login with your name
7. Hit "NO"
8. Choose a Restore Point.

To do PC Restore:
Hold on CTRL and keep on pressing F11 on the page next to the Dell Logo
- it's a black page with a blue bar at the top that says ""
- this page disappears in less than one second. once you miss it, the system will show the
Windows logo.

SOURCE: I cannot start-up a Dell Optiplex GX260 in normal mode

I recently had a problem that sounds similar to this - A virus was causing a fake validation window to pop up when I booted my computer and blocked all other functions. 
Start your computer in Safe Mode and go to Start>Run>type msconfig and hit ok. Go to the Startup tab, make sure you can see everything in the Command column, and uncheck anything that doesn't sound fimilar. Hit ok then restart and see if the validation window pops up again after a normal boot. If it goes away you can prpbably clean away the rest of the virus with a simple virus/adware scan.

Screen locked on website page cannot delete. Asking for money to unlock.

It is possible you have gone to a website that attempts to put a form of malware called 'ransomware' on your device. Usually this is done on an Android device by getting you to click on a phony popup window that "Flash" or some other software needs to be updated. You will need to contact Amazon support to see if they have any new procedures for restoring your device software. Most reports are that they do not have any way to get past current ransomware, but something may have come up. There are anti-virus and anti-malware apps for Android devices. You might want to install one if you get your system cleaned, before going to unknown websites.

To resolve the think point virus you will need to hit Ctrl, Alt, and Del at the same time. Then go to the task manager on your screen. When the task manager opens up, click processes. Find the file that is named hotfix.exe and end it. After ending it click back on applications in the task manager and click new task. Type in explorer.exe and your start menu and icons should start to popup. Download Malware bytes from, run the malware full scan, and remove once complete. It will have you reboot the computer and your issue should be resolved.

Virus problem

Hi, viruses are quite easy to remove, and shouldnt cost you anything if done correctly.

uninstall any virus software you have, download this software and install it
update it and scan the whole system, it will pick them up and remove them, then once its took off as many as it can, uninstall this virus check and install a different one like this

do one more scan and your as good as new...

you dont have to change the virus checker the second time, but alot of virus checker dont always pick up them all so always better to scan with two different ones to make sure there all off..

All the best
