Why You Will Not Find Justice with the Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus

Although the Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus uses a warning message that's presented in German, the other details of Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus's pop-up reference the nation of Switzerland, making it likely that the Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus is intended to target German speakers of that country (which make up a majority of the population).

After the Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus infects your PC, the Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus launches itself automatically with Windows and displays a screen-covering and borderless pop-up window.

SpywareRemove.com malware experts strongly urge you to avoid paying the Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus's fine, which is illegal and can't help you remove the Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus from your computer.

Stopping the Federal Department of Justice and Police Virus from Running Roughshod Even When You Can't You Run Anything Else
