Your Windows has been blocked Pop Up.



“Your Windows has been blocked” is a title of a popup generated by popular program-extorter. 
It targets Windows users of any system version regardless of system activation status.
The popup imitates Windows environment and is allegedly generated on behalf of Microsoft because of intellectual property rights violation. It  demands a 100 Euro penalty to be transferred by Western union to natural person residing in one of the Eastern European countries like Romania.
 
Get rid of “Your Windows has been blocked” popup and do not provide incentive for hackers to develop new scan schemes as they will get encouraged for new malevolent exploits, if you pay them as they demand. 
You may need to get your computer system into Safe Mode  to start the removal of “Your Windows has been blocked” popup, i.e. trojan that displays this popup. To switch to the suggested mode, order system restart and tap F8 repeatedly while system is restarting to enter boot menu and select the suggested mode.

Removal:

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • explorer.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\explorer.exe
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\explorer.exe
Although it is possible to manually remove Your Windows has been blocked Pop Up, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
