Everytime i now log on to my computer in normal mode, and then connect to the internet. My computer becomes locked by a pop up that claims it is from the met/strathyclyde police, and that i have visited and have on my computer snuff porn/child porn. I have been asked to pay a fine of £100 within the next 48 hours to unblock my computer.

I noticed a spelling mistake in the title, and the fact i have no child porn on my computer (i know that means **** all). Makes believe this is a scam. Running my computer now in safe mode-and obviously i can connect to the internet-and running a virus scan/

Does anybody know anything about this? is it a scam or what?

Ask the police. Most likely a scam, if you had child porn they would definitely raid your house, blocking your internet would be pointless as they would be in your folders. Seriously, go to the police.

I'm pretty sure if you had CP they'd do more than lock up your computer, proly a virus.

That's the first thing I would've said.

"Chief, he's got kiddie porn. Take 'im in?"

"No no no... block his internet, and make him pay a relatively small amount for the crime. That'll teach him.."

I had a friend who was held at gunpoint as a cashier. The robber told him to give him all the money in the register and what not. Apparently my friend then replied, "Would you like a slurpee with that?"

Malware scan it too.
I had something like this happen to my computer.
It said it was filled with virus's that I couldn't get rid of until I bought their antivirus protection.

Run it in safe mode
Download malware bytes
then scan for malware.

If this doesn't work just do a system restore.

Can't blame you. I just used it a few times to look at ''cool underground'' sites that don't really exist. Yeah, learned that lesson pretty quick too. Sucks that the program actually makes these ****ers impervious to being caught.
#32
that's like the most obvious virus ever.

If the police thought you had child porn I'm pretty sure you'd be sitting in a prison cell right now. Dunno how you'd get rid of it though, it can be hiding in a lot of places on windows. Try running some type of malware scanner like malwarebytes.

Yeah, and that everyone else that uses the program gets associated with them. It's just a series of tunnels.

Omg While i'm typing this i gots another speeding ticket from " Florida Police Department". LOLLL i love those little "wherever they are frommers" who make these scams.
#35
You've already done the best thing by starting up in safe mode and running a virus scan TS. Virus's like that are usually not well hidden or very well coded against people who are good with computers, as seemingly only an idiot will actually pay the fine.

If it doesn't find it, however, try running a system restore, and then doing another scan.

Well I wouldn't say they are really associated with them. They just tend to plague the whole ****ing deepweb somehow. Basically all we can count on is Anonymous to keep publishing info on these CP traffickers.

I've seen articles on the stuff they were able to extract and give to the media, chatroom conversations and all that; pretty ****ed up. I never knew it was that bad.
