Police Nationale Virus
Tens of different Ukash viruses use Police Nationale and Gendarmerie logos and names in order to trick thousands of French Windows users. Police Nationale Virus may be presented in various form alerts and attached names; however, the objective stays the same. Cyber criminals have developed the infection to trick you into thinking that national authorities have spied on your illegal cyber activities and that you need to pay fines for something you might not even have done. Even if you are ready to take partial blame for some of the accusations, you must realize that the fictitious notification that has locked your screen has no legal rights to accuse you of anything. So, you need to remove Police Nationale Virus, and you should keep reading to find out all about the sinister ransomware.
If you know a little about Windows and processes that need to be carried out in order for a program to run smoothly, you will understand that Police Nationale Virus is built from various malignant components. In the case of the malignant infection, these files are almost always downloaded onto your computer by Reveton faction Trojans (e.g. Trojan.Reveton.C). They can be integrated through surreptitious bundled downloads, clandestine encrypted software installations, dubious social engineering scams and other security vulnerabilities that any Trojan could utilize upon command from remote servers. The malign elements can then hijack the Windows Registry, initiate computer screen’s lock-down and display such unnerving alerts as these:
Votre ordinateur a été verrouillé.
Ce btocage de l’ordinateur sert a la prévention de vos actes illégaux. Le systeme d’exploitation a ete bloque a cause de la derogation de lots de la Republique Française!
The accusations are really disturbing and you might find the logos and names of the Police Nationale highly intimidating. Nonetheless, you should not rush into paying the demanded fines or contacting any given email addresses, because this could bring you even more trouble. It has been found out that some Windows users who decided to comply with schemers and had paid pay the ransoms, in order to regain access to their systems, did not observe any changes. So, whatever you do – do not even think about using Ukash or Paysafecard to pay the alleged fines. This is something that you would be advised to do by other Ukash viruses’ victims, who had to deal with Česká Republika Policie virus, SACEM virus, GEMA virus and other ransomware applications.
Even though at this moment your infected computer is likely to be still locked, you should not think that there is no way for you to delete Police Nationale Virus. Follow the directions bellow and soon enough all malware will be removed and your Windows system will be protected.
1. Restart the operating Windows system.
These instructions will not work for Windows XP users, who need to:
N.B. If you are considering proceeding with manual removal, only begin if you have successfully deleted Trojans before. The running of rootkit Trojans is very common alongside Ukash viruses and not all Windows users will be able to proceed correctly.
