PCeU (Police Central e-crime Unit) Pops up to Ask for Ransom! – Steps to Unlock Computer

Type: Ransomware
Severity: Very high
Dissemination route: 1) website that offers suspicious programs, plays with videos; 2) shared networking; 3) email that sent from unknown resource.

Lock-down PCeU Is a Scam!

Never doubt its nature as a scam even though it offers you an email with the name of Metropolitan police to send unlock code to in case any error occurs. Always bear in mind that an authentic department will not lock up screen and ask for money. Here’s the screenshot:

A screen demanding £100 for law infringement such as terrorist relevance, visiting porn videos and copy right illegal occupation locks up everything and prevents doing anything: restore point is missing; F8 key simply takes victim in circles and unable to lead user to selected mode, etc..


Please do not waste time by scanning with various programs, it is obvious that nothing is detected and even though there are some files alerted to be removed, there seems to be zero progress. A tricky virus that is able to bypass security utility should be removed manually for complete removal. 

As regards to the lock down virus, should the removal be incomplete, it will come back with devil contribution, and you’ll meet up with BSOD frequently or unable to enter into system at all. So hurry up to help yourself. If you don't want to trudge through complex solutions, you are welcome to get professional help from Tee Support technicians 24/7 online by starting a live chat here.
