I am supposed to have downloaded music illegally, the computer is locked and I must pay £100 through Paysafecard to unlock it. How can I unlock my PC?

OK, it is Ransomware.And you won't get anything for your money! You need to download a rescue disk from one of the Internet Security companies - one such disc being from Kaspersky - enter link description here

I must add that I have never had this problem or used this rescue disk but Kaspersky is a reputable company.
