European Law Enforcement Agency Virus
Computer threats have many ways to trick users into doing what's wrong. European Law Enforcement Agency Virus is a malicious program that pretends to display an official notice from the Europol. It is a ransomware application that does not allow the user to enter his desktop. The screen is covered with the notification entirely and there is no way to access the desktop even if you restart your computer. European Law Enforcement Agency Virus attacks users all over Europe and makes it seem as though the users have committed serious crimes and they need to pay for it.
In general, European Law Enforcement Agency Virus is no different from other Ukash Virus infections. It functions just like FBI Moneypak, Metropolitan Police Virus, Europol Ransomware Virus and many others. This ransomware program gets into your system through Reveton Trojan infection or a drive-by download. Naturally, it doesn't prompt the user about the oncoming installation, and the next time you turn on your computer, you are greeted by the European Law Enforcement Agency Virus's notification. At first it looks as though the message is legitimate, because the program adds other reliable symbols into its notification - Kaspersky, McAfee, Dr.WEB and others. However, that is done only to fool the user. Thus you must ignore the following message contents:
Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below:
Your computer has been trying to download and/or to install pirated software or multimedia files protected by international laws and has been blocked
According to EU legislation you are required to pay 100 EUR administrative fees if this is the first time you have violated the copyright law.
To help you make your payment faster and totally anonymous to you, we decided to accept vouchers that are spread nationwide and can be purchased in all major stores.
Since a lot of users don't know how to fix this issue, they end up paying the 100 Euro ransom fee, but the truth is that their computers are not unlocked afterwards. European Law Enforcement Agency Virus only aims for your money and it gets it, if you panic and spend it on the fine that is requested on no grounds. Nevertheless, removing European Law Enforcement Agency Virus is not as hard as you might think.
We recommend using SpyHunter for the automatic removal process. Follow the instructions below to unlock your computer and terminate the infection:
