Having one infection in your computer generally means that you are infected with other computer threats as well. This can be also applied to the case of Poliisihallituksen Virus, which is a ransomware application, but it usually is distributed by Urausy Trojan. Due to the fact that Poliisihallituksen Virus denies desktop access, users tend to concentrate on this infection alone, and they fail to notice that their system is also infected with Trojans. However, when you remove Poliisihallituksen Virus from your computer, make sure that you perform a full system scan with a reliable antimalware program that will detect all the other infections as well.
Poliisihallituksen Virus did not appear out of nothing. This ransomware program that infects users in Finland is a direct descendent and simply another version of Keskusrikospoliisi virus, Tietoverkkorikosten Tutkinnan Yksikkö Virus and other computer infections from Ukash Virus group. Probably the most notorious infection from this family if FBI MoneyPak Virus, however, all the other threats make use of the same tactics to enter target computers and to extort money from innocent computer users. The main point is that Poliisihallituksen Virus cannot be trusted, no matter how believable the notification on your screen might look like:
Above you can see an extract from the notification that is displayed on your screen. This message does not allow you to access your desktop, and it is always there no matter how many times you restart your PC. Poliisihallituksen Virus tries to convince you that you have violated several laws and that you were involved in pornography distribution. According to the infection, that is the main reason why your desktop has been locked.
Nevertheless, Poliisihallituksen Virus has nothing to do with the Finnish police authorities, and it only wants you to panic and then spend your money without giving it a second thought. It pretends that it can unlock your computer, and all you need to do is pay the ransom fee within 48 hours since the appearance of the notification on your screen.
However, the only one who can unlock your desktop is you. Do not pay attention to the message on screen and then follow the instructions below to get your computer back, and remove Poliisihallituksen Virus for good.
