Ransomware is a special type of computer virus that locks the desktop of the infected PC with a special warning that can’t be removed easily. In the majority of the cases the ransomwares claim to be some scary notifications supposedly coming from the police. Today many corners of the globe have suffered from this serious threat, and users are being actively misled by various ransomware programs that are specifically designed for some special country.

The locker asks its victim to pay the fine for committing some fake crimes allegedly performed via the infected computer. The malware makers ask users to pay the fine via Ukash, Paysafecard or GreenDot MoneyPak payment systems. Please do not ever make such mistakes! If you do this the chances are that you will never get your money back. Instead, use legitimate and powerful security software to remove all the above-mentioned infections. We recommend you to try using GridinSoft Trojan Killer by first restarting your computer into safe mode with networking. If you have any troubles doing so please immediately get in touch with us via all available support channels (preferably via ticket support system).

  1. Hi ,
    A Police Virus like mentioned on the site here appears on my screen and I cannot access any function of my computer.

    Can you please tell me what I can do to get rid of this?

    Kind Regards,


  2. Dear Pierre,
    If Trojan Killer hasn`t found anything it means that your computer is clean. But to get the reliable scanning results you are recommended temporarily disabling other anti-viruses available on your computer, because they prevent Trojan Killer from a proper scanning. We need to analyze the scan log file to determine whether your computer is infected or not. To collect the scan log file please go to “Tools” tab in the upper part of GridinSoft Trojan Killer program window, click “Log files”, open the latest scan log file (s), save it to some folder of your PC and send it to us as the attachment ONLY VIA CUSTOMER TICKET SUPPORT SYSTEM – http://trojan-killer.net/support/open.php
    Best regards,
    Trojan Killer customer support team.
