    Is there a free tool to remove the "police" (UKash) virus? Malwarebytes
    removes bits of it, but not enough to stop it.

    Spyhunter claims to find it, but then wants you to buy it, so it is as
    bad as the "police" virus itself.

    Any ideas, please?

  2. This is probably too late but I've found combofix to be effective in
    the past.

    Thanks - starting in safe mode allowed me to find where it had hidden
    the program (in C:\ProgramData), and ther various camouflaged shortcuts
    that tried to re-start it.

    Cheers,
