I will try and help. Do nothing. You are being scammed. If you have not done so already, immediately close out that account and put any money in it somewhere else. Do not communicate with these people further. Do not buy them any gift cards.
I hope this helps.
How can I help further. What sort of solution are you hoping to find? If you can offer more information, perhaps I can give you an answer you feel suits your needs.
Ok. The short answer is that the people who did this to your computer are not going to unlock it unless you pay them a bunch of money. This is a popular new scam.
I would suggest taking it to a local computer repair place. They may have software that can fix this lock. If not, you may not be able to regain control without reloading the software you have on it. In that situation, you will lose your data.
