    Default FBI malware

    hi, dont know, if you heard of the new FBI virus...When i was browsing internet, a window that couldnt be closed popped out and it said that i have to pay 100 euros or ill be arrested and that kind of crap. It was obviously fake. I tried reseting the computer, starting it in safe mode, nothing seemed to work. This happened yesterday and today, when i wanted to get dvd out of my computer, it was working. The window dissapeared and computer works fine. But is it possible, that the virus is still in the computer, operating in the backround? if yes, how can i remove it?
