System Watcher from Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 includes a special option of protection against screen lockers. The option allows to close a banner asking to send an SMS to a phone number by clicking a specified key combination. In this case, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 will detect and delete the screen locker.

Screen lockers block or limit access to computer or functions asking to send a paid SMS for restoring the computer to its initial state. In this case, even if you send an SMS, access to the computer can remain blocked.

In order to enable the protection against screen lockers option, perform the following actions:

  1. Open Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014.
  2. At the bottom of the window click Settings.

  1. In the Settings window go to the Protection Center tab and select System Watcher.

  1. In the System Watcher window in the Protection against screen lockers section, make sure the Detect and close screen lockers box is checked.
  2. Select a key combination to close a screen locker manually. 

  1. Close the application window.
