The infection Ron has is Reveton Ransomware.
While the above will get you back on the internet, it will not completely remove the infection and all of its components as well as other infections the PC may have due to the vulnerabilities created. This leaves your PC vulnerable to further infection and theft of information.
I highly recommend you seek the help of an IT professional to remove all components of the infection, even if you have to pay for it.
I have cleaned the infection from about 12 PCs in the last month. 3 of the PC owners actually paid the $200, which they will never see again.
