Dept of State "System Cleaner" virus
I had a "System Cleaner" virus pop up and seize my computer this evening. I cannot get around this. I've rebooted several times and it continues to seize my computer. Looks real, stating I've violated fed law and can pay a $200 fine with a monepak and not be prosecuted. Says I only have 48 hrs. How can I get rid of this mess?

First of all do not pay :) . Second follow all the steps as detailed here:
Malware Clean-up Guidance
If one step fails skip to then next and so on....
and to avoid this in the future read this:
