you need to install f-secure or comodo antivirus to remove it.

Microsoft has a couple of utilities that may help in removing it.  However these tools require some computer knowledge to run.

Windows Safety Scanner:

Windows Defender:

I would also suggest running Microsoft Security Essentials over Symantic but every person has their own 'favorite' virus protection tool.

System restore from safe mode with command prompt and typing rstrui.exe to restore is the recommended solution.

Once you get it cleaned up, get rid of Symantec and get something decent like Vipre or Sophos antivirus.

This means you may not have any restore points from the past.

Have you turned off restore points?

Personally, I feel restoring to a past point, even if you had one, is unnecessary for this particular virus.

I removed it with Windows Defender.  Had it install as a bootable device on a USB stick, rebooted, it scanned/removed, done.

FWIW: In the past, system restore helped get rid of this malware.

I don't disagree that it will get rid of it (assuming the restore point is prior to the infection) but to downside to that form of removal is you lose what you have from the restore point and the time of the restore.

Going on a trip:
Leave home, drive 500 miles, get a flat tire, turn around, go home to fix it then re-drive the 500 miles again.

Versus:
Drive 500 miles, get a flat tire, drive to the next exit/town, find a service station, get it fixed, continue on.

CryptoLocker, yes.  Reveton, unecessary.

In Jest [ you move with the car, but you move your fingers and mouse with the PC ;-)]:

(Not when you are at the cross street from your home-street and the next service station is 50 miles away.)

Cheers. :-)
