CryptoLocker Virus Removal

CryptoLocker is an extremely malicious program categorized as ransomware. Once it infiltrates the computer it encrypts the data stored on the hard drive and demands ransom from the owners of the infected PCs. According to the developers of the CryptoLocker, paying the ransom is the only solution if the users want to regain access to the stored data. The amount of money, which has to be transferred, might vary from 500$ to $1500.


What is more, sometimes users might be informed that the files are encrypted due to the fact that there is child pornography stored on the HDD. This false accusation will be presented in a notification window which appears instantly after the infection. User should have in mind that transferring the demanded funds won‘t solve the issue as access to the blocked PC will not be restored. Sending criminals the money will only make things worse as it might be used to fund future scams.

There is a variety of methods which are implicated in order to distribute CryptoLocker. For instance, the virus might be bundled with freeware that might seem completely harmless from the first glance. Furthermore, the virus might reach the PC via spam email. Even clicking on a suspicious advertisement might lead to CryptoLocker infection. It just goes to show that users should have their eyes wide open each time they browse the internet.

Once the PC is infected the best thing to do is follow the removal tips that are provided below the article. Users should have in mind that important personal data associated with identity or e-banking could be lost due to this infection. As a result, users should not hesitate and seek for a solution as soon as possible.
