What is Trojan.Lockscreen?

If your system is not protected from malware enough, you might notice one day that Trojan.Lockscreen, which is a serious computer infection, has entered your system. Yes, it might sound unlikely that it is possible to notice when Trojan enters the system, but it is true. Users who have already encountered Trojan.Lockscreen claim that the first thing which signals that Trojan.Lockscreen is on your computer is the screen-sized warning message. It will lock your screen and you will not be able to access any of your programs or documents. In addition, your Task Manager will be blocked too. This is mainly done in order to convince you that there is something wrong with your system and, of course, not allow users to get rid of Trojan.Lockscreen easily.

How does Trojan.Lockscreen act?

It really seems that Trojan.Lockscreen has been created in order to earn money from computer users because the warning message that locks screens tries to convince users to call the given toll free number. Of course, it is not known whether this number is really free and it is very unlikely that you will contact the “PC Security Helpline” by making this call. Unfortunately, many users dial this number and lose their money or reveal sensitive data to cyber criminals. We cannot blame them because Trojan.Lockscreen acts very persuasively: it places a warning message on the screen, claims that “your system has been detected with potential hazard (TrojanSPAM/LX)”, and restarts the system periodically (every minute and 60 seconds). On top of that, it blocks system utilities. Unfortunately, it seems that you will not be able to use your computer normally unless you get rid of Trojan.Lockscreen. We have to upset you by saying that it is not so easy to do that.

Trojan.Lockscreen creates a folder in the %ProgramFiles% directory when it enters the system. This usually happens when users download untrustworthy software from some kind of website, click on a third-party advertisement, or simply open a spam email attachment. There is a number of ways to infect the system with malicious software, so you should not forget to take care of your system’s safety in order not to encounter other infections similar to Trojan.Lockscreen ever again. We do not think that you will be able to protect your system from malware, especially if you are a less experienced user, so we recommend installing an antimalware tool. There are various tools available, but not all of them are trustworthy, so our security specialists recommend investing in SpyHunter.

How to erase Trojan.Lockscreen

As this is a serious computer infection, you should not expect to remove it via Control Panel. Yes, it is possible to get rid of it manually, but you will have to start your Windows in Safe Mode with Networking. After doing that, you have to locate the folder of Trojan.Lockscreen and simply delete it. You can do that manually, but, of course, the easier way to get rid of this threat is to scan the system with an antimalware scanner. You can download SpyHunter or another tool after booting your Windows in Safe Mode with Networking. Keep in mind that it is highly recommended to scan the system with an automatic tool if you decide to delete Trojan.Lockscreen manually.
