Interpol Virus – Removal Instructions

Interpol Logo

Interpol virus infections are locking computers and preventing access. The Interpol Virus locks your computer and demands payment of a fine. This is a fake Interpol Department of Cybercrime computer block and you did not commit any crime. Use our Interpol removal instructions to unlock your computer and remove the Interpol virus. Removal instructions are at the end of the article.

The Interpol Virus is being reported around the world in multiple countries. Regardless of where you live the Interpol computer block can infect your PC. The majority of the notices that people see on their computer accuse them of a crime and the notice is supposedly from the Department of Cybercrime. However Interpol did not block your computer. The Interpol Virus is a scam.

Your computer is blocked and you see an Interpol notice stating that you have pirated software, downloaded illegal pornography and more. This virus tries to scare you and make you think that the real Interpol blocked your computer. This is a financial fraud created by cyber criminals to steal money and personal information.

The fake Interpol warning asks for you to pay a fine in order to unlock your computer. The notice on your computer clearly states that if you pay a fine then Interpol will unblock your computer. The fine varies in amount and detailed instructions on how to pay for the fine are usually provided. Please do not pay the Interpol Department of Cybercrime fine, it is bogus.

The Interpol Virus may even display a webcam, your IP address and other detailed information. Do not be deceived. The displaying of your picture on a webcam and the accusations being made against you are all a social engineering technique. The cyber criminals who created the Interpol lockdown want you to be scared and pay the fine immediately.

We are extremely confident that if you follow the instructions below you will permanently remove the Interpol Virus.

Attempting to pay the Interpol fine will not unlock your computer. You will be wasting money if you try to get a Ukash code or a PaySafeCard code in order to unblock your computer. The Interpol Virus will not unlock your computer even if you enter a legitimate code. Do not purchase a Ukash or PaySafeCard voucher, you will not remove the Interpol warning.

A lot of people think that they can do a system restore on the infected computer and the Interpol Virus will be removed. This is not true. Doing a system restore on a computer that is infected with the Interpol computer block will not fully remove the virus. We highly recommend that you remove the virus with a virus removal program in order to ensure that it is safe to use your computer once again.

  1. The virus that appeared on my laptop is one that resembled this Department of Cybercrime and Interpol virus, with variants of other viruses and their fixes mentioned on this website that also mentioned the U.S. Defense Department and the F.B.I. The message stated the computer was locked down because of various possible violations, including child pornography, copyrights’ infringements, and terrorism conspiracy, and to unlock the computer payment must be submitted through something called “MoneyPak®,” located at the convenience store chain Seven-11® (even using the Seven-11® logo).

    But what is most frightening about this virus is its ability to hijack one’s web camera and snap a picture of the user that it incorporates into this very official looking notice which states one’s computer has been locked because of the aforementioned possible violations that are all very serious crimes.

    What I would like to know, besides the obvious of how to remove the virus and restore the functionality of one’s computer, is if one must change all one’s passwords and user names one has used on websites, including personal financial information such as that related to credit/debit cards used with such systems as PayPal. Would this virus be able to spy on and steal this information from the point at which it arrived on one’s computer, even should that have been up to weeks and months previously?

    Or is it more likely the virus arrived more recently, as just before the lockdown notice popped up on the monitor?

    And could this virus also spy on & steal information stored in offline files, such as word documents that may contain passwords (for when one forgets them logging into websites), even when one had not been interacting online, and while one’s computer was shut down before one has the chance to remove the virus from one’s computer?

    Sorry this message is redundant. But the other ones I wrote either seemingly disappeared or would not post. So I rewrote the message into one that distills all the points better into one post, and copied into a word document in case was lost again. I am working on a borrowed laptop until a friend arrives to help me with the virus fix. on mine And this latop has its own issues, because of its age and still Windows XP OS. You may remove all the other posts and please just answer this one.

    Thank you.

      Hi. Thank you for replying. We highly recommend that you change all of your passwords. This is more of a precautionary step simply because we do not know exactly what the virus creators could have obtained while your computer was infected. The ability for them to hijack your webcam is proof enough that they may have been able to compromise other sensitive information without you knowing. I definitely recommend changing your passwords. It is time consuming but will help you sleep at night :)

  2. Just in this virus is being scanned. I have a question is that even if this is deleted, will it return?

  3. I have the same problem. I have done all the steps (1 to 7), but I can’t go further. When I click run, Spyhunter doesn’t work. I can’t download Spyhunter on my PC. I have been waiting for 2 hours but it doesn’t work. What can I do? Is there another solution?
    Thank you!

  4. I can not get into safe mode.

  5. My HP Pavilion Slimline (Windows 7) will not go into Safe Mode with Networking. As soon as the Windows screen completes loading, the system begins logging off and shutting down, then Restarts and will go into Normal mode if I allow it. If I try Safe Mode with Networking again, it does the same thing. It will allow Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Command Prompt but not Safe Mode with Networking. How can get into Safe Mode with Networking without the machine Restarting?

    • Randall Savage says:

      This seems to be a reoccurring problem for some people. The machine restarts once you get try to get into safe mode with networking. What country are you located in?

  6. Hello,
    For me the problem is at step 6. Instead of letting me it sends me to login to my account. Thank you to answer me if ever there is a solution.

    • Randall Savage says:

      Do you have your admin credentials for your computer? If so, please login as admin. This may help. Please let us know. Thanks.

  7. I have problems when I have to perform step 5. The computer restarts. I have even taken the battery out of my laptop without success.

    • Randall Savage says:

      We are trying to find a solution to people who cannot enter safe mode with networking. It seems to be a unique situation. We will update the post when we have found an alternate method for those who cannot enter safe mode.

      • hello, have you found a solution to be in safe mode without the computer automatically rebooting? Impossible to get rid of and do anything at all.

        • Randall Savage says:

          We are looking into other options for users who cannot enter safe mode with networking. We will update this post when we find a viable solution. This virus seems to get worse over time.

  8. This scam is getting smarter each time. This is the third time ive had it and each time it improves and stops me removing it. It prevents system restore and now it wont even let you go on safe mode

    • Randall Savage says:

      I agree. The individuals who have created this virus are adapting it and making it more difficult to remove.

  9. Hello I am infected by the virus since yesterday. I tried restarting in safe mode with networking, the computer restarts I press the Windows key and R, the run box appears, but the image ‘interpol back and no way of doing nothing is stuck on the screen and restarts the computer. What should I do? Please help.

    • Randall Savage says:

      We are still working on additional options that may help get rid of the infection. However, this virus is extremely advanced and we are still testing alternate methods for removing it.

  10. oĞuzhan ilhan says:

    Me too my computer got infected by this virus. It does not let me start my computer in safe mode with networking.

    • Randall Savage says:

      We are working on a new solution for those having the computer restart issue. We will keep you updated when we have a confirmed fix.

  11. Hi, have you figured out how to get into run without the computer restarting? I am really screwed if I do not get removed the virus. So please help. Really appreciate your work. Thanks in advance.

    • Randall Savage says:

      Hi, we are still working on a solution for those that have the computer restart issue. This virus is very nasty. We will update soon hopefully.

  12. Christina says:

    I did unfortunately to buy a Ukash code at the local 7-eleven. I did not pay the fine when I found out that it was a virus. The question is just whether I can recover money for the Ukash code that I bought?

    • Randall Savage says:

      If you did not give the code to the virus then I believe you can cash the Ukash back in at the store. Or buy some groceries with it. I think it is still good if you have not given the code to anyone.

  13. When you click on safe mode with networking and press Windows + R nothing happens.

  14. I appreciate your hard and smart work, because this is the computer virus of the century. It leaves you without your computer, it affects your files, finances and other personal information.
