Do you know what Bitcryptor Virus is?
Bitcryptor Virus is one devious threat that can encrypt your most valuable and sensitive files on your Windows operating system. Similarly to CoinVault ransomware and other infections from the Cryptolocker family, this threat uses different tricks to enter your PC without your noticing. For example, you might find that you need to delete Bitcryptor Virus from your operating system after you open corrupted spam email attachments or download malicious bundles. Once activated, this infection encrypts your personal files (mostly text and picture files) in order to have leverage when demanding a ransom. This ransom is presented via a notification indicating that you need to pay 1Bitcoin – which is around €207 or $236 – within the given time. This is an intimidating demand that often delays users from removing this virus. Bitcryptor Virus screenshot

Once installed, Bitcryptor Virus not only corrupts personal files, but also blocks all major programs. Luckily, this threat does not block web browsers, which makes it easier to research this clandestine infection and its removal. Unfortunately, the removal of Bitcryptor Virus has nothing to do with the decryption of your personal files. Whether you keep this ransomware active, or you delete it, your personal files will remain locked. Many computer users choose to pay the ransom, but there are no guarantees that cyber criminals would keep their promises to decrypt your personal files. Other users choose to delete Bitcryptor Virus without worrying about their files, and this is what you should do if you have backup copies in removable or online storage. You might also be able to find file decryption tools. Whatever you do, it is most important that you eventually remove Bitcryptor Virus.
