Koda Ransomware is a virus that can tamper with Windows Registry, change the computer screen appearance settings and deny access to the desktop. If you do not remove the infection timely, it is possible that this application’s creators could infect your PC with even more sinister infections. Despite this possibility, you should also be aware that the virus itself usually travels with the help of Trojans like Trojan.Reveton.C. This means that this clandestine application could be running in your computer at this very moment, and, needless to say, a malicious Trojan can corrupt your personal accounts and put your financial security at serious risk. Of course, both of these treacherous programs may run very quietly; however, there are a few signs that will help you detect malware and rush to delete Koda Ransomware. One of these signs will be the system blocking alert:
Din computer er blevet last
If you have downloaded and distributed pirated music videos, you should stop this activity because it is punishable by law. Regardless, you should not even think about obeying the demand of 1000 DKK fine payment, especially if you do not agree with the presented accusations. The entire warning is completely fictitious, including the illegally attached Koda logo, which is meant to convince you that the PC’s lock-down has been initiated by the respectable agency guarding copyrighted material. In reality, the company is not legally empowered to lock computers or ask you for money, which clearly indicates the fictitiousness of the warning.
Koda Ransomware comes from the faction of Ukash viruses, including the Metropolitan Police virus, An Guarda Siochana virus, Buma Stemra virus and tens of other computers locking ransomware applications. The programs are targeted at different European countries, and Koda Ransomware will be a huge threat to Danish Windows users. Despite this, similar ransomware viruses from the same group have been detected targeting countries in North America, Asia and Australia.
Even though there is a reliable way to unlock the computer, you will need to remove Koda Ransomware simultaneously, because this infection has been noticed to regenerate if deleted incorrectly. You should also note that paying the demanded ransom will never fix any problems, and your PC could remain blocked even if you pay 1000 DKK. So, follow these instructions and install automatic removal tools in order to have your computer free of Trojans and other malicious infections:
1. Restart the computer, and before it boots up – press F8.
Windows XP users should install automatic removal tools, after downloading them and unlocking their PCs using Safe Mode with Networking. To unlock the computer, you need to access System Configuration Utility and disable Startup programs.
