    I’ve done that a gazillion times & still can’t get all my picture folders. They show up in File Explorer but I can’t copy/paste them from there.

    Thank you so so much for this. I have been waging a war against some text-link virus and yours was the only place that told me how to do everything with a fine-toothed comb and also wrote it all up as if you were speaking to a child 😀 You rock, thanks for all your work. Say hi to the bookstore in thousand oaks for me!

    Thanks!!! My system restore would not remove the problem, I could not access the Internet to download another solution. I searched “Fake FBI $200” and found your wonderful site. Using your very exacting instructions I was able to remove the virus and access the Internet and download an updated antivirus program, you saved my computer!!!
