If a banner appears on the screen with a demand that you send a text message to a specified phone number, it means that your computer is infected with ransom malware. Such malware are created to block access to a computer or restrict access to some functions and request a ransom to restore computer functionality.

In order to fight ransomware, Kaspersky Lab engineers designed a special utility named Kaspersky WindowsUnlocker. The utility can be launched when your computer is loaded from Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 and allows you to work in graphic and text modes of Kaspersky Rescue Disk.

To protect your computer from ransomware, download and install Kaspersky Internet Security 2014. The application provides high-level protection against ransomware.
