So what has happened is that I no longer have the task bar (bar across the bottom that shows the clock and and start button). Also can't right click on my desktop to make it show my icons. Now this morning I keep getting a pop up that says "tiny spell" at the top with this message: Tray message NIM_ADDfailed. When it is showing, I can't type here.
Hoping that some of you computer experts can help. Please keep in mind that I can't use the phone well, but I can text on my phone or use email. Also can use the forum to communicate.

ACCDFISA – RansomWare
A new variant of the Malware Protection ransomware has been released called Anti-Child Porn Spam Protection. This ransomware pretends to be from a legitimate government organization that states that the infected computer is sending out SPAM that contains links to child pornography sites. The ransom program then states that in order protect yourself, and others, it has encrypted your data using Advanced Encryption Standards, or AES, encryption. Just like the Malware Protection and the ACCDFISA Protection Program variants, these files are not actually encrypted but are password protected RAR files. The hackers then require you to send them a Moneypak, PaySafeCard, or Ukash card for values ranging from $500 - 1,000 USD in order to get the password for your files.

I used Avast for years, but changed to Microsoft Essentials probably a year or so ago. (Not sure that's the name of it but I can't look it up to see the name.)
Just wondered. A friend of mine has everything imaginable on his business server and this thing still got him. They went nuts trying to get it working before the work day started. He resorted to tearing out a back drive from another server. They tried all night and couldn't remove that darn thing.

I am so sorry that this happened to you! What they said on the news is this is a very destructive virus and can happen to anyone of us.

Now you tell me Birdie! It was strange that it popped up and was gone in about 3 seconds, so I don't know if turning the computer off would have stopped it. Hope no one else gets it.
