Trojan.LockScreen.EM is a malicious computer infection that most users discover only after it locks the desktop and presents suspicious information. As our researchers have discovered, you may be introduced to a screen-locking notification informing that your operating system is infected with malware. This may be the first warning signaling that you must delete an active Trojan. If you do not remove Trojan.LockScreen.EM, you will not be able to operate the system in a regular manner, and your security will become vulnerable.
Trojans are spread using deceiving scams, so that computer users could not discover and delete them before they are activated. Trojan.LockScreen.EM may enter the operating system silently bundled with other infections, or it could be executed after opening a corrupted spam email attachment. The distribution of this Trojan is unpredictable; however, the removal of this threat may depend on it. For example, if Trojan.LockScreen.EM comes packaged with other malware, you may have to delete other infections as well.
Once installed and activated, Trojan.LockScreen.EM can block executable files, block Internet connection, and change the background of your desktop. Unlike Ukash Virus, FBI Virus, or other screen-locking infections, Trojan.LockScreen.EM does not ask for money in return of screen unlocking. In fact, the purpose of this clandestine infection is unclear. Nonetheless, if you postpone the removal of this threat, it is quite possible that the threat will be updated and will be used to install other clandestine infections that will require removal. This is a great security risk, and so the removal of the Trojan should be performed ASAP.
The clandestine Trojan.LockScreen.EM can reconfigure the Windows Registry to unsure that the threat auto-runs with Windows, which means that you will face a locked screen every time you restart the PC. As mentioned already, the threat blocks executable files, which means that you will not be able to access the Registry Editor to remove corrupted registry keys or values. You will not be allowed to terminate malicious processes (e.g., DragonDay.exe) using the Task Manager either. Luckily, you can delete Trojan.LockScreen.EM components if you reboot the system into Safe Mode.
Do you think that the manual Trojan.LockScreen.EM removal is complicated? It sure is, which is why less experienced computer users should employ automatic malware removal tools to delete the clandestine Trojan. The installation of this software may seem complicated as well; however, if you follow the guides below carefully, you will have Trojan.LockScreen.EM deleted before you even know it. Using automatic malware removal software is particularly beneficial if you have to delete other intrusive infections as well.
