Policja Wirus

Policja Wirus a Polish version of Ukash group of viruses, which has been aggressively attacking PC users these days. Basically, it should be called the ransomware infection because it locks computers down and disables its victims from all their files and programs.

Besides, when having Policja Wirus on board, you won't be capable to get online and download a remover for this sneaky application. So, there is almost no chance not to notice this sneaky infection and there is lots of work when trying to remove it.

Be sure that Policja Wirus seeks to mislead you into thinking that you have been blocked by a real police office and that you have to pay the fine for your law violations. Instead of falling for this alert and believing that you can be arrested and jailed, continue reading this post and get more information about Policja Wirus and its removal. If you need a quick fix, use Reimage.

Ransomware keeps spreading around with the help of spam

Policja Wirus is spread by trojan horse, which can easily get on the vulnerable system undetected. That's why you should always think about appropriate computer's protection and have anti-virus and anti-malware installed on your machine. Once it manages to get inside, it modifies some system's parameters and starts launching every time PC is rebooted.

Basically, there is no gap between computer's reboot and this misleading alert, which pretends to belong for the official authority. Just like other ransomware threats, Policja Wirus claims that it belongs for local police, which has investigated illegal activities on this computer. 

Typically, it says that user has been watching porn videos or spreading pornographic content online. Finally, it asks paying 100 euros as a fine for all those law violations. Instead of doing that, you should remove Policja Wirus. For that, follow the additional information.
