Strathclyde Police UKash Virus

This is an updated guide as I found recently ( Mar 2012 ) that malware bytes failed to recover a customers UKASH infected machine.

The UKash virus pretends to be a punative police notice. That demand the payment of a penalty.

Stage 2 - Start the infected PC in safe mode.

Restart the infected PC and press F8 during boot. Then choose Safe Mode with networking.

Stage 4 - Remove all components of the virus

Inser the USB/CD and run Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool . This will remove all the active components of the virus

Restart the PC and start in Normal Mode. Your machine should now run. A cmd box will open as Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool attempts to remove all traces of the virus.
