Polizei Österreich Virus Removal Guide

Do you know what Polizei österreich Virus is?

Polizei Österreich Virus is a ransomware infection that surreptitiously infects your system and then blocks your computer with intention to push you into pay a ransom fee. This infection is commonly distributed by a Reveton Trojan, and in case of Polizei Österreich Virus , it targets users in Austria and anyone who has Austrian IP address. The ransomware program presents itself as a notification from the Austrian Cyber Crime Investigation Department and it lists a number of crimes you have supposedly committed.

In a sense Polizei Österreich Virus works just like FBI Moneypak, Magyar Redorseg Virus, Politia Romana Virus and other infections from the Ukash Virus group. It does not allow you to access the desktop, and tries to convince you that you really have committed those crimes. Rather that the conviction, fear works a lot better. Image that you cannot do anything with your computer and all you see is a Polizei Österreich Virus warning message that reads:

Achtung! Ihr Computer ist aus einem oder mehreren der unten aufgeführten Gründe gesperrt.

Sie haben gegen das Gesetz über <> (Video, Music, Software) verstossen und unrechtmässig urheberrchtliche Inhalte genutzt, bzw. verbreitet und somit gegen Art. 128 des Strafgesetzbuches der Bundesrepublik Österreich verstossen.

Der Betrag der Strafzahlung beläuft sich auf 100€.

Just like other infections from the Ukash virus group, Polizei Österreich Virus accuses you of downloading and storing copyrighted material. It says that by doing that you violate articles from the Criminal Code of the Federal Republic of Austria. Polizei Österreich Virus even says that you might get imprisoned for the alleged crimes, unless you pay the 100€ fine and your computer will be unlocked.

However, none of that will happen. This message is fake, and you need to terminate Polizei Österreich Virus if you want to get rid of the notification and get your desktop back. Follow the instructions below to erase the malware:
