hey
i tried posting my question in a couple of places, because I need help to unlock my computer and i don't know how to deal with it.
It just shows a big screen with a text that says that my computer is locked by the NSA Internet Surveillance Program and if I want it unlocked I have to pay.
And I'm not even close to the USA?! how do i remove the virus?

This virus/scareware has been floating around for quite some time now in various "flavors"; FBI, DOJ, etc. This should get you up and running: http://malwaretips.com/blogs/nsa-intern ... #hitmanpro

Ok, so I think I got rid of it.

It took sooooo long :shock:
I had to do a lot of reading. I found some very useful articles(including the one you gave me, thanks for it, it was really helpful) like those two http://www.xp-vista.com/spyware-removal ... oval-guide http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-r ... ransomware
I started my PC in Safe Mode and I downloaded these two programs http://www.malwarebytes.org and http://www.avast.com
I think they did a fine job, at least I can use my computer again :D
thanks again for helping! :)
