United States Courts virus

United States Courts virus is a computer infection which is distribute by a Trojan horse which access the system without the user’s consent. The infection modifies the registry in order to constrain the user from accessing the system. Instead of your desktop, you will find a full-screen warning whenever you log into Windows. The warning contains the logo of United State Courts and it is supposed to make you think that the warning you see is real. The truth is that United States Courts virus is a scam as well as such computer infection as České Republik Police Virus, Polizei Cybercrime Investigation Department, Luxembourg Police Grand-Ducale Virus, and many others. All that you should do is remove United States Courts virus, and the sooner you do it, the better it is for the system.

The reason why United States Courts virus should be removed is that the bogus warning presents falsified information. It states that the user has illegally downloaded copyrighted files, such as mp3 files, movies, and software. If you were to look at the interfaces of other ransomware infections, you would see that they are very similar in that they present almost identical statements. Unlike United States Courts virus, some other ransomware infections contains the statement claiming that the user is suspected of visiting pornographic websites.

Here is an excerpt from the fraudulent warning:

Illegally downloaded material (MP3's, Movies or Software) has been located on your computer.

By downloading or uploading, those files have been reproduced, thereby involving a criminal offense under 17 U.S.C.A. SS506(a) and 18 USCA SS2319 (2)(A)(B).

What is more, the user of the infected computer is advised to pay a ransom of 300 U.S. dollars in order to unlock the computer. The money is required to be paid via GreenDot MoneyPak. This online money transaction system is based on the prepaid system, which means that the user is expected to buy a MoneyPak voucher and enter its pin code into the box given in the upper right corner. Do not waste your money as the computer may remain locked after you have made the payment.

Moreover, pay no attention to the note saying that the fine must be paid within 48 hours. The sooner you remove United States Courts virus, the sooner you minimize the risk of having the computer affected by various computer infections.

We recommend that you remove United States Courts virus once you find that the computer has become inoperable. Our advice is to use SpyHunter as this spyware removal tool will delete the infection and safeguard the PC against future computer infections.
