Mike’s Advice: All Windows users should install HitmanPro.Alert with CryptoGuard ASAP to help prevent data loss from this nasty ransomeware. Cryptolocker is a dangerous ransomware that will find your files on computers, attached drives and networks and encrypt them. Once it has finished encrypting the files, it will show a popup that tells you that your files are encrypted and you have to pay a ransom to decrypt them before the 96 hour countdown completes. If you do not pay the ransom during the countdown, the private key used to encrypt the files is destroyed and your files become unrecoverable.
Contact Mike’s Computer Repair if you want to have CryptoGuard installed.
Mike is recommending all Windows users immediately purchase HitmanPro.Alert with CryptoGuard as soon as possible. This is a a program that checks the browser integrity and alerts users when secure online banking and shopping my have been compromised by trojan infections. The included CryptoGuard solution currently blocks the encryption of files caused by the crypto ransomware.
