Windows 7: Please help identify this Windows 7 login security

Ransomware! ...
Quote:
Essentially online extortion, ransomware involves infecting a userís computer with a virus that locks it. The attackers demand money before the computer will be unlocked, but once the money is paid, they rarely unlock it.

In the vast majority of cases, victims do not regain access to their computer unless they hire a computer technician to remove the virus manually. And even then, they risk losing all files and data because the best way to remove the virus is to wipe the computer clean.

Continue backing up all of your uncle's files and proceed to reformat!
