Security Shield took over my computer.  I couldn't get rid of it, nor could I get to any other website.  They wanted me to pay $80 and sign up for their security system.  I was not about to pay hostage money to those pirates. 

I was able to go to my Control Panel and get to the Recovery and Open System Restore, which brings up "Restore computer to earlier point of time".  I rolled the computer back to several days before these pirates captured my computer and the virus was gone.

I don't understand why any of these people who have reported this RipOff paid ransom money.  That just encourages them to continue stealing.

I also sent a report to my state's Consumer Protection office.
