Computer Has Been Blocked by Rikspolisstyrelsen Virus Ukash Scam – How to Unclock Your PC From The Warning Screen?
The Rikspolisstyrelsen virus (Sweden) is a computer virus that is also called the Rikspolisstyrelsen ukash ransomware, and it attacks the computer and displays a fake warning message in an attempt to get the PC user to send the cyber criminals money for violating the law. It is similar to Metropolitan Police Ukash Virus and FBI. To an untrained eye, the message will appear to come directly from the Swedish police and it notifies the user that the computer has been blocked by them for the illegal use and distribution of copyright material. It also goes on to suggest that the user has also been involved in SPAM activities as well as sending pornographic material through the Internet.
While of course this is a completely fake threat, the fact that the Rikspolisstyrelsen virus (Sweden) is picked up mainly through sites that contain downloads and file sharing the user will often think that the violation occurred then and will tend to believe that this is a legitimate offense. The truth is that the Swedish police will never lock a users computer or demand money be paid online.
Once the Rikspolisstyrelsen Virus is picked up it will start to alert the settings of the computer to accomplish two things. First, it will set it that the warning message displays immediately after start up, and secondly it disables all other functions of the computer. The user will not be able to close the warning window and they will not be able to open another Internet browser window either. Without being able to access the start menu the user will be forced to shut the computer down by holding the power button. This will then trigger the system to ask if they want to restart in “safe mode” and even when this is done the warning message will pop up and block all other features.
