BKAV Ransomware Scan – Scan and Remove Ramsomware CTB-Locker
CTB-Locker, also known as Critroni, is a hazardous ransomware application that can affect all Windows systems and encrypt your files. You may have gotten infected by this malware while visiting corrupted websites. The ransomware is installed by a Trojan. It is very good at staying hidden as the program creates a file with random digits and runs a process that is called Adobe Flash Player 10.3 r183.
When the computer user sees this process he or she may just think that they have downloaded and installed a program used to watch online videos, however, that is not the case. CTB-Locker presents you with a notification that states your files have been encrypted and that you need to pay the cyber criminals in order restore access to those files. We do not recommend following these instructions. Instead, you should terminate CTB-Locker yourself.
In order to remove CTB-Locker manually you have to delete all executable files from the %Temp% folder and clean the hidden job in the Task Scheduler. However, we do no recommend doing so if you do not have advanced computer knowledge. Instead, you should use BKAV Ransomware Scan to scan and remove CTB-Locker on your computer.
