Close at the heels of related Police Ransomware Trojans for other countries, the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware is an Ecuadoran Police Ransomware Trojan that pretends to detect criminal activities related to your computer and blocks you from using Windows until you pay its ransom. This ransom, rather than originating from Ecuador's police force, actually is a criminal request that's designed to make you pay the money without offering any real solution for unlocking your computer. In contrast, SpywareRemove.com malware experts recommend a solution to the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware's attacks that will unlock your PC without requiring you to pay money to criminals: the appropriate use of anti-malware products to remove the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware, preferably in conjunction with any of the additional security steps mentioned in this article to block the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware from starting and interfering with its own uninstallation.
The 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware: When Seeing Legal Warnings Definitely Shouldn't Be Believing in Them
In spite of displaying a warning message that's been changed to specify Ecuadoran details like the nation's coat of arms and national police emblem, the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware is a clone of similar fake Police Trojans that have been known for attacking other countries around the world. In particular, SpywareRemove.com malware research team points out that the legal warnings in the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware's automatically-displayed pop-up – threats about child pornography, copyright violations and other online crimes – all are copy-pasted from older fake Police Trojans, with the only major change being the text's translation into Ecuadoran Spanish. Naturally, it shouldn't be a shock to learn that the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware isn't really sent by Ecuador's national police and doesn't have any way to detect any supposed crimes related to your PC.
Along with displaying this fake legal warning whenever Windows starts, the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware also takes steps for blocking other Windows programs and, potentially, even your desktop. Even though the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware asks you to pay a fine to resolve this problem, SpywareRemove.com malware experts strongly advise against this – since it will not unlock your computer, and since the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware is incapable of launching any of the legal penalties that the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware claims will be forthcoming in the event of a failure to pay on your part.
