CryptoLocker Ransomware is a deceptive message that usually alerts PC users through a generic warning pop-up alert that says ‘your personal files are encrypted’. This notification is baseless and has no merit for your files actually being encrypted. However, the CryptoLocker Ransomware will reside on your system through a Trojan horse identified as Trojan:Win32/Crilock.A.
The CryptoLocker Ransomware threat message and Trojan infection will cause the affected computer to lock up or prevent access to most installed programs. Once this takes place you may not be able to utilize your system normally. The CryptoLocker Ransomware will continually ask that you pay a fine of $100, $300, 300 Euros or 100 Euros through a legitimate payment method being either MoneyPak, Bitcoin, CashU or Ukash. Through those payment methods the CryptoLocker Ransomware will debit your account of $100 and fail to unlock your system or give a legitimate ‘private key’.
Removal of the CryptoLocker Ransomware is needed to unlock an infected system and to completely remove the CryptoLocker Ransomware and its associated Trojan horse malware files. This removal process can take place automatically through the use of an antispyware/antimalware program like SpyHunter.
In an effort to alleviate the problems that come with CryptoLocker Ransomware, you should take action now to remove CryptoLocker Ransomware. The process of removing CryptoLocker Ransomware can be tricky, which is why you may use a malware solution to easily remove it from your system. New antimalware software is one key to removing CryptoLocker Ransomware in addition to manual removal, which may be performed by more experienced PC users.
