TorLocker Virus is a computer infection you don’t want to encounter. This dangerous threat has the ability to encrypt your personal files, which means that you will not be able to access your photos, personal videos, documents, and other personal files unless you manage to decrypt them. The decryption of the files affected by most cryptolockers is extremely difficult or even impossible, but not in this case. Our malware researchers have discovered a bug in the TorLocker Virus code which makes the decryption of your files possible. If you read this report, you will learn more about this infection and its removal. Needless to say, you should delete TorLocker Virus from your PC as soon as possible.
It was discovered by our malware experts that TorLocker Virus uses the AES+RSA encryption system to encrypt personal files and create public keys that supposedly could be used for the decryption of your files. When TorLocker Virus encrypts files, it also changes the desktop wallpaper that represents the ransom message, which, usually, is the first indicator that you need to remove this ransomware. It is obvious that this infection has been created for one single purpose which is to get your money. If you get intimidated by the cyber criminals who promise that you will not be able to use your personal files unless you pay a ransom, you might do just that. Fortunately, you don’t need to pay any ransoms. What you need to do is remove TorLocker Virus.
If you want to delete TorLocker Virus from your operating system – and you should – you probably should decide what you want to do about your files first. Our researchers recommend using reliable file decryption software to restore personal files and then immediately remove TorLocker Virus. Are you thinking about paying money to the creators of the malicious ransomware? This is not something we recommend, because schemers’ promises to restore your files after the ransom is received could be completely fictitious. On top of that, you would still need to remove TorLocker Virus, even if your files were restored, just to make sure that schemers could not attack again.
We are sure that you are ready to delete TorLocker Virus from your operating system. Unfortunately, most users do not know how to remove this ransomware, because it blocks the executable files on the desktop denying the access to web browsers. In fact, if you go to the original location of the preferred web browser, you will be able to launch it. If you manage this, go ahead and install a reliable automatic malware removal tool. This tool will ensure that all components of TorLocker Virus are removed from your operating system. This tool will also delete any other infections that might be present on your PC.
