    Department of Justice ransomware a joke as far as viruses go

    Ok so i got the Department of Justice ransomware and i found out something hilarious, my computer made a restore point 45mins before this ransomware popped up... i dont have it set to create a restore point every day so im guessing windows 7 forced the restore point before the ransomware initialized and downloaded. If you have windows 7 run in safe mode and run the restore easy as pie . NOTE: if you run a restore in safe mode it CANNOT be undone.

    Or...don't click scandalous links, don't download random things, and if you had trouble w/ those 2 please also DO NOT SPEAK TO STRANGERS.

    first part is true but not talking to strangers? that is excessive....... (and likely ruins allot of potential fun times)
