Supercrypt Virus – Removal Instructions
Supercrypt Virus is a one of the most destructive malwares in existence. It is known as a dangerous ransomware. Media reports have reported its rise to affecting over 44,000 PCs per day. Supercrypt Virus claims to have locked your PC because of illegal content online. The purpose of the Supercrypt Virus is to try and frighten infected PC owners with paying a ransom to recover files. The malware is very similar to known viruses such as Police virus, Ukash virus, FBI-virus and other ransomware.
One of the most interesting things about this virus is that it has the ability to review the history of the browser and collect data about inappropriate and illegal sites that were visited. Its ability to spy on the history of the browser seems to be the reason that many sufferers have already paid the fake ransom to the creators. It is advisable to ignore the virus warning message and remove the Supercrypt Virus from your computer.
Once the Supercrypt Virus has penetrated into a PC, it triggers the aforementioned activities and begins a fake message from a government agency display, which is usually chosen according to the location of the user. The Supercrypt Virus encrypts important files independently until they have all been removed from your computer system. It can encrypt documents, videos, pictures, and music. Unfortunately, the files that were encrypted may never be recovered. The notifications are fake, and if the requested amount is paid, the virus may still remain on the computer and files will continue to be encrypted.
To avoid the Supercrypt Virus and viruses like this, users should always make sure that their computer is protected with the latest version of anti-spyware. It is recommended that the destructive malware be removed immediately to prevent additional damage. When removing this destructive malware, make sure that all of the Supercrypt Virus has been removed in addition to all associated files.
