i used to play minecraft classic but then it said that it was several years old and is no longer supported so i tried the full version demo but then it said that my video card drivers werent updated enough so i typed in google, " minecraft for free " and clicked on the link tryminecraftforfree.com and clicked play and download and then it came up with this fbi thing and locked my computer and said that i have to pay 200 bucks to unlock it and i have to pay some other fee within the next 48 hours ( this happened 24 hours ago ) or else the option to unlock my computer will expire and further law suits will be taken against me and my computer might be confiscated and i might go to jail for up to 3 years!!! what do i do???!!! help me!!!

That is a virus; not the FBI. As long as you are not in possession of stolen copyrighted materials, you're fine.

Restore your computer to an earlier date.
