What is Interpol virus?

Interpol virus is the latest threat from Ukash viruses that can easily lock your computer down for invented law violations and then ask you to pay the fine through Ukash or Paysafecard prepayment systems. This Ukash virus works under the name of Interpol Department of Cybercrime and mostly attacks European and North American countries. Be aware that its alert, which typically reports that ‘Your IP is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below’, is completely fake and you must NOT pay the fine but remove Interpol virus from your computer. No matter how trustworthy it looks, it seems only to trick PC users and collect nonexistent files. In order to get your computer fixed, you will need to remove Interpol virus from the system. True, removal of this ransomware is especially complicated because this virus is capable of locking it down and blocking legitimate software or Internet connection. However, if you have some knowledge about system’s architecture or you know someone who has some, you can easily get rid of this ransomware threat. Please, do NOT keep Interpol virus on your computer because this may lead you to additional issues, such as redirects to illegal websites, collecting of your personally identifiable information, etc.


Just like other Ukash viruses, Interpol virus is spread through Spam emails filled with infected attachments. Of course, you can also get infected with this ransomware through fake updates, freeware and other files that have a related Trojan virus added to them. In order to stay safe, you should delete all suspicious mails that are full of grammar or typo mistakes. In addition, please ignore these ads that report about missing Java, Flash Player, FLV Player and similar updates because they are used for spreading malicious programs instead of the real ones. If Interpol ransomware manages to get inside the system, it can easily lock your PC system down so that you couldn't do anything about it. In addition, it will start showing you its alert, which, in fact, looks really unprofessionally because it includes grammar and typo mistakes. However, there is a high chance that it will fool computer users after making them shocked to find that their computer has been suspended by such enforcement agency as Interpol Department of Cybercrime.

Keep in mind that Interpol Department of Cybercrime or other official institution doesn’t collect their fines in this way – they don’t lock computers down and then ask to make a payment through Ukash. If you have been disabled by such alert, follow the tips listed below and remove Interpol virus:

I recently had similar issues with removing the Interpol virus and found the following work around.

A few details about my system first
Windows XP Professional SP3
Dell Optiplex 170L (PC) (old I know : )

I had also tried various removal tools including anvisoft without successful removal of the Interpol virus.

1. Restart your computer.
2. When the computer reboots and the desktop appears (icons, start menu etc), [b]press the power button on the PC[/b].
This initiates a system shutdown and on my PC killed the lock screen.

3. Other dialog boxes then appear asking you to end more processes.
4. Prevent the system from shutting down by clicking the close dialog button (x) on any one of those end process dialog boxes that appear.

I was then able to access my system as normal, download and install malware software which this time found and repaired the infected files. ( previous scans using boot CDs had either failed to find anything or had found only a small number, around 11, infected files).
