    Computer Locked

    Yesterday,,, my desktop got invaded by a worm/virus/???.... Not sure if it was in an email or a program update at this moment. What I can say is, it made its appearance when I turned my computer on for the second time yesterday. It goes through POST just fine, boots all the way up to the log in window, I log in just like normal and then this warning image makes its appearance and tells me my computer is locked out. It has the banner headline that it is from the Dept of Homeland Security cyber crimes center and that i have done one or more of the listed cyber crimes... viewed/distributed porn/child porn, participated in credit card forgery, participated in credit card fraud, etc, etc, and for the fee of 300 USD I can get my computer unlocked. Needless to say, NOT going to happen. The question is,,, since I can't get past that warning image, how do I fix this problem short of a new install of Windows 8.
