Specs: N/A
My screen says my PC has been blocked by the Met Police until I pay 50 pounds by Ukash. Have tried opening in various safe modes but cannot access task manager or registry. Can you help?

'The allowed me to start system restore which did the trick.'

That doesn't mean the infection is removed.
You may want to try these 3 free progs in the EXACT order:
1- rkill.exe
2- tdss killer
3- malwarebytes
Fix all they find and then reboot

On another note, good job not paying the 50 pounds, as many many of these sorts of things are scams. Many people fall for these(why i am not sure), so kudos for using common sense.

Thanks for your post.

Downloaded and ran all three programs and rebooted.

Nothing discovered but that's good to know.
