Trojan.Ransomlock.AF Instruction :

Trojan.Ransomlock.AF is a high risky Trojan virus which is capable of getting into the computer without letting the computer users know. It is so powerful and active that the computer is easily infected with it if we are not cautious enough when viewing or downloading anything online. Normally, downloading some free applications from unknown sources, visiting malicious websites or opening spam email attachments may lead to its infiltration to the computer.

Trojan.Ransomlock.AF has the ability to carry out some malicious tasks right away once it finishes its installation into the computer successfully. The important system settings have been modified by it, which offers a highway for it to perform those malicious tasks set by the evil cyber criminals smoothly. Because the virus consumes a lot of system resources, the infected computer is running extremely slowly and weirdly. Sometimes you may need to wait for more than 15 minutes for the computer to finish the startup completely. Running programs keep showing “Not Responding” and then shut down before you can save the data. What is worse, some other viruses will be put in the infected computer with the purpose of further damaging the computer system. If you let the virus stay in the computer for a long time, a complete system crash will happen. The cyber criminals can record your computer using traces when the computer has Internet connection. The files you edit or the sites you login can be acquired by them. This Trojan is rooting deep in the computer system by pretending to be a normal system process. That is why the antivirus programs cannot identify its vicious components. Thus, manual removal is the best choice. The Trojan is a serious threat for your privacy which needs to be removed timely.
