Hi. My computer has been infected with the FBI Moneypak virus. I have a windows 8. I've tried instructions everywhere on youtube, google, etc. and have had no luck. The window pops up in every kind of safe mode there is, I've turned off my internet because one person said that might help, pretty much anything there is I've tried. I would love some advice as I have a work project (that I was in the middle of!!) that is due tomorrow and not only am I afraid of losing it all, but I need to finish it ASAP! Does anyone have any answers please?!!
