Remove GVU Lock Screen (German Ransomware)

The Gesellschaft zur Verfolgung von Urheberrechtsverletzungen (GVU) Ukash Ransom is a computer virus, which will display a bogus notification, that pretends to be from the German Cyber Crime police and states that your computer has been blocked due to it being involved with the distribution of pornographic material, SPAM and copyrighted content.

The GVU virus will lock you out of your computer and applications, so whenever you’ll try to log on into your Windows operating system or Safe Mode with Networking, it will display instead a lock screen asking you to pay a non-existing fine of 100 Euro in the form of a Ukash or PaySafeCard code.
Furthermore, to make its alert seem more authentic, this virus also has the ability to access your installed webcam ,so that the bogus GVU notification shows what is happening in the room.
