Screen lockers are malicious programs that display a banner on the screen which cannot be closed, and then demand a ransom for removing it. However, you will not necessarily receive an unlocking code if you do what the malefactors demand.

If a ransomware banner appears on your screen, press the key combination set in the application settings. Kaspersky Anti-Virus will detect and remove screen-locking malware.
