Cyber Crime Unit virus removal tool

Today we will tell you about another ransomware program that attacks Greece today. It is called Cyber Crime Unit virus (at least some users prefer to call it like that). However, it has nothing to do with Cyber Crime Unit. It is a typical scam developed by the pack of cyber frauds who want to possess with the part of your funds. This locker comes to your PC unexpectedly and immediately blocks your entire system with its scary alert that says: “Ο Υπολογιστησ Σασ Εχει Μπλοκαριστει”. You should not trust any deceitful statements expressed by this scam.

Solution 3 (manual)

  1. Restart your system into “Safe Mode with Command Prompt“. While the PC is booting press the “F8 key” continuously, which should present the “Windows Advanced Options Menu” (for Windows XP) or “Advanced Boot Options” (for Windows 7 and Vista) as presented in the image below. Apply the arrow keys in order to move to “Safe Mode with Command Prompt” and hit Enter key of your keyboard. Login as the same user you were previously logged in under the normal Windows mode.
  2. Safe Mode with Command Prompt

  3. Once Windows boots successfully, the Windows command prompt would appear as described at the screenshot below. At the command prompt, type-in the word “explorer.exe“, and press Enter. Windows Explorer should open. Please do not yet close it. You can minimize it for a while.
  4. explorer.exe

  5. Afterwards open the Registry editor by applying the same Windows command prompt. Type-in the word “regedit.exe” and hit Enter button of your keyboard. The Registry Editor should open.
  6. regedit.exe

  7. Find the following registry entry:
  8. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon

  9. In the right-side panel select the registry entry named Shell. Right click on this registry key and select “Modify” option. Its default value should be “Explorer.exe“. However, ransomware virus did its job, and so after you click “Modify” you would see totally different value of this registry entry.
  10. Copy the location of the modified value of the above-mentioned registry entry to the piece of paper or memorize its location. It shows where exactly the main executable of ransomware virus is located.
  11. Modify the value of the registry entry back to “explorer.exe” and save the settings of the Registry Editor.
  12. Go to the location indicated in the value of modified registry entry. Remove the malicous file. Use the file location you copied into the piece of paper or otherwise noted in step in previous step.
  13. Get back to “Normal Mode“. In order to reboot your system, when at the command prompt, type-in the following phrase “shutdown /r /t 0” (without the quotation marks) and hit Enter button.
  14. shutdown /r /t 0

  15. The virus should be gone. However, in order to clean your PC from other possible virus threats and malware remnants, make sure to download and run GridinSoft Trojan Killer.
