Blocked-Police.com is an adware program that uses the disadvantages of online advertising payment system to make money. This program belongs to a class of “browser hijackers”, and is one of the most widespread malicious programs over the past few weeks. If you have Blocked-Police.com on your PC, we can give you some useful tips to help you understand the problem, remove Blocked-Police.com from the system, and to protect your computer from such threats in the future.

First, you should understand that programs such as Blocked-Police.com cannot independently penetrate the computer. If Blocked-Police.com lacks functionality, allowing to get into the system, and self-installed, so you or other users of the computer, allow this hijacker to install. Blocked-Police.com uses penetration method called "bundled installation". This means that the malware gets on computers in bundles with other programs. Usually such bundles contain one useful free program and from three to ten or even more adware and viruses. If you found Blocked-Police.com on your PC than there are more viruses, and you should scan the system to find them too. The bundled installation method has two main advantages over all other methods that web-scammers use. The first one is that user willingly installs an unwanted software, allowing it to run and sometimes even declining the proposals to delete in that come from antiviral tool. The second advantage is that browser hijackers are completely legal and their developers can’t even be sued, because during the installation of any browser hijacker user confirms that he agrees with EULA, where all functions of software are described. If you have Blocked-Police.com on your computer, you should immediately remove it and think about renewing your anti-virus.

 

 

Automatic removal tool

Blocked-Police.com, as any other browser hijacker, can be fully removed from your system in few minutes. There are two main methods to do it, and we will describe them both in this paragraph. The first method is more suitable for high skilled or experienced users and consists of deleting Blocked-Police.com from control panel (if it can be seen there) and from the list of browser extensions.

The second method, contrariwise, is the easiest for adware and malware deletion. This is an automatic method that depends on the quality of your antivirus.
