Decrypt Protect virus

A lot of computer infections want to make an impression that you have done something illegal and thus your computer access has been restricted. Decrypt Protect Virus is one of such malicious programs. It is distributed by Trojan Reveton and the malware can be categorized as ransomware infection. The meaning behind the name is rather simple - Decrypt Protect virus holds your computer hostage and expects you to pay a 300 USD ransom fee for something you have not committed. Therefore, it presents the same security threats as other Ukash Virus group infections such as FBI MoneyPak Virus or ICSPA Virus.

What you have to realize is, however, the fact that if you are infected with Decrypt Protect virus, then it means that you have other infections on your PC as well. That is so, because the ransomware infection is distributed by Trojans and other malware, and you may not even notice how or when the infection takes place. The next thing you know, is that your PC is locked and you are asked to transfer money via Green Dop MoneyPak alternative payment system. The same methods are used by a variety of other Ukash infections, for example, Metropolitan Police Virus or EC3 Europol Virus.

Naturally, the fact that you cannot access your desktop can be very disturbing, but even if Decrypt Protect Virus claims that you will be prosecuted if you do not pay the fine within 48 hours, do not panic. This ransomware infection is not concerned with overall online security. It simply wants your money, you should ignore the notification you see on your screen:

You have 48 hours left to enter your payment.
You have lost control over your computer. Your system and all your files has been blocked and encrypted because you were spreading Malware (viruses, trojans, worms).
You are breaking numerous International and USA laws.

The most important thing is to stay calm and keep your money to yourself, because paying Decrypt Protect Virus will not solve anything. In order to unlock your PC and terminate the infection, you have to bypass the malware's defenses first. Follow the instructions below, unlock your desktop and remove Decrypt Protect Virus.
