Please help!!! Politiet Norge virus appeared on my desktop a couple days ago. It is really freaking me out. I don’t know what to do because as long as I turned the PC on, it gave me a police warning page. I concerned that if I will get any trouble with illegal issues because according to the locking screen, it says I have to pay a fine of 100 euro through Ukash within 72 hours because I have violated law and something, but actually I have never done that before. So I google it and found it was a scam to cheat my money. Now how can I unlock my computer from Politiet Norge Virus?

This virus blocks the whole screen as soon as computer users log in and it originates from a family called Urausy as similar as Norsk Politi Institutt for Cybercrime Virus. It works by locking the target computer and pretending to be a real warning from Norwegian Police in order to scare users and accuse them for violating laws, copyrights things. Firstly, it claims that there has been illegal activity detected from the IP address of your PC. Then it further asks victims to pay a fine of 100 euro through Ukash within 72 hours in order to cover this violation. In reality, this warning is a virus and it has nothing to do with the police, as this comes from hackers that are attempting to get as much money as possible from innocent users.
It is really frustrating and annoying when your computer gets locked. There is no way to unlock the computer or close out the warning message that the Politiet Norge virus displays.
