Alpha Crypt Virus – Removal Instructions

Alpha Crypt is a malicious virus known as “ransomware” designed specifically to force you to pay a ransom to access the files on your computer. This action is similar to paying a ransom in a kidnapping situation. Alpha Crypt infects a computer system by sneaking in through holes in your computer security that you don’t realize exist. Typically, these easy access points exist because users don’t regularly update their anti-virus or anti-spyware programs that are designed to stop viruses from downloading and lock away malicious programs that manage to sneak through. Some people don’t have these programs on their computers at all.

Additionally, your computer can get infected with Alpha Crypt while you are surfing the Internet. For example, you might click a link in an email or on a website that takes you to a suspicious-looking or an illegal website designed with traps that trick you into downloading the virus onto your computer. The download can happen when you click a link on the site or attempt to close a pop up ad. With a single keystroke, Alpha Crypt downloads without you knowing until it is too late.

Once Alpha Crypt downloads onto your system, the program accesses all of your saved files, such as important software tools, documents, photos, videos, games, personal finance data, et cetera and then Alpha Crypt locks the files with a special code so you can’t get access without a password. The catch? You can only get the password by paying the ransom to the criminal, also known as a hacker, who created the virus. Alpha Crypt typically notifies you of its presence on your computer and provides the instructions you must follow to regain access to your files with loud sounds and a pop up screen. In most cases, the instructions will tell you that you must pay ransom via a cash card or a PayPal or Bitcoin electronic money transfer.

This type of extortion might cost you anywhere between a few hundred dollars up to a thousand dollars or more. Even if you pay the ransom, as with real world kidnapping situations, the hacker might still decide to not give you the password even after he/she has received the funds. As a result, most computer and Internet security experts recommend that you follow the guide below for help if you discover Alpha Crypt on your computer.
