Revaton virus

Has anyone seen this Revaton virus. It takes over your computer and puts the FBI logo on your screen and tells you that you have been shut down because you have watched porn or pirated music or videos and asks you to go to several stores where they show logos such as CVS and purchase a moneypak for $$$$. then you put the number of the moneypak in the info box and submit them and your computer will be released in 1 to 4 hours. the one I got asked for $300.00. My computer guy charged me $150.00 to get rid of it

I haven't seen that one... but I would make sure that in the future make sure your computer is backed up to an external hard drive that is safely stored somewhere. Then you can reformat if that ever happens again. I have very little to worry about I have two back up methods right now... and knock on wood no virus for the past 4 years!
