The 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware is a Belgian Police Ransomware Trojan that simultaneously locks your computer, displays fake legal warnings and requests a ransom fee within a strict time limit to remove its attacks. While its warning message strives to look legitimate, SpywareRemove.com malware research team easily verified that the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware is cloned from past fake Police Ransomware Trojans and is an illegal program that doesn't need to be paid to unlock your computer. As an alternative, you should consider disabling the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware through the same techniques that are used against most types of automatically-starting malware followed by deleting the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware with whatever anti-malware software you prefer.

Why the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware Doesn't Have Any Jurisdiction Over Your Computer

The 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware always can be identified by its pop-up warning, a standard browser window that's been modified to remove its border – and any ability on your part to minimize or close the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware. This pop-up message claims to be sent by Belgium's national police to block your PC to prevent crimes like viewing child pornography or downloading copyright-protected content (accusations that are copied and pasted directly from related fake Police Trojans, albeit with a language translation to Belgian French). However, the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware actually is installed on random computers without taking into account any criminal activities, and SpywareRemove.com malware researchers easily verified the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware's lack of authorization from any kind of government agency – from Belgium or anywhere else.

The 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware's alert also includes a fake timer that supposedly counts down until further legal penalties are enacted, although SpywareRemove.com malware researchers stress that this simply is a bluff to make you pay the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware's fake legal fee even more quickly than otherwise. Accompanying all of this is the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware's primary attack, a system lockdown which will deny you access to most other applications. However, there are safer and less expensive means to work around the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware's lockdown than paying its ransom, which holds no benefits for your PC or your person in the eyes of Belgian law.

Refusing to Be Intimidated by the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware's Ominous Countdown

Since paying the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware is completely unnecessary and the information supplied in its warning message can safely be disregarded as fraudulent extortion, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers recommend you use standard anti-malware products and techniques for deleting the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware freely. Common security steps like booting into Safe Mode or booting through a flash drive will let you have access to your software and prevent the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware from launching, and any reputable anti-malware product thence should be able to delete the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware.

The 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware is a Belgium-based fake Police Trojan, but other countries also are endangered by related attacks from similar members of the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware's family of fake Police Trojans. SpywareRemove.com malware experts especially emphasize such examples as the 'Ministry of Public Safety New Zealand' Virus, the 'FEDPOL BundesKriminalPolizei' Ransomware, the 'Canadian Association Of Chiefs Of Police' Virus, the 'Comandancia General de Policía' Ransomware, the 'Služba Kriminální Policie a Vyšetřování’ Ransomware, the 'Arma dei Carabinieri' Ransomware and the 'Dansk Rigspolitiet' Ransomware, – all of which target specific countries other than Belgium, but otherwise are identical to the 'Police Judiciaire Fédérale' Ransomware.
