Removal of Serios (Serious) Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) Ransomware misspelled attempt to scam you out of £100

Serios Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) Ransomware contains serious misspelling already in its title.
This infection breaks into computer system as a trojan or malicious Java script. It applies critical modifications to host system enabling it to block most of other programs on your PC. Fortunately, it neither wipes any data, nor destroys software. That is, as soon as you remove Serios Organised Crime Agency Ransomware (wrong spelling preserved) along with leftovers the issue is resolved.
What it does actually is it shows you an alert made to look like an official notification by Metropolitan British Police, Police Central e-crime Unit. As stated above, it blocks other apps, so as you are staring at this popup you can hardly use any other facility on your PC.
The ultimate claim by the ransomware is that you pay them £100 within 48 hours.
The ultimate way to get rid of £100 Serios Organised Crime Agency Ransomware is with free scanner uploaded here. Please note even if you pay the so called fine requested by the swindlers this will not terminate the scam.

Manual uninstall guide:

Delete SOCA malware registry entries:
 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon "shell" = "explorer.exe,%AppData%\cache.dat"
