Hey i do not assume this has been included however within the McAfee faux AV Stinger, however it in all probability are. it is a new variant of an existing scam initial seen in Germany and therefore the Netherlands It tries to urge you pay up with faux threats of dire consequences for failure to try and do thus. As a primary step, attempt running Malware bytes which can have already got noted this and added it to its database of threats. If that fails to get rid of it allow us to apprehend, and we'll raise for it to be added to the Stinger; then you'll run GetSusp, that ought to isolate the files accountable.

Re: How to remove Ukash Metropolitan Police Virus

I am undecided this would possibly facilitate this I what I even have came up because the potential resolution
  1. First Boot your laptop into safe mode however pressing F8 because it starts up.
  2. On another laptop download a replica of ComboFix and duplicate this to a USB Pen or CD. ( you'll Google this file simple to search out )
  3. Run ComboFix from the removable media, and reboot when it finishes.
  4. Once back in Windows run ComboFix once more to make certain.
  5. Ensure your A/V is up up to now and Windows updates are put in.
  6. The scareware can currently be gone and you may have your laptop back.

Hope this can facilitate because it is Tested beneath Windows seven.

Thanks for the reply truly the Malware bytes worked and MacAfee?s update did look suspicions afterwards, did not appear to stress, however I reinstalled it anyway and it currently functions as before. Restart, pressing f8 repeatedly, then choose safe mode with networking downloaded malware bytes and follow directions.
