If a banner appears on the screen demanding a ransom or requesting that you send a text message to a specified phone number, then your computer is infected with ransomware. Ransomware blocks access to your files and does not allow to perform any actions on your computer. Then, they demand ransom to restore computer functionality. 

To get rid of ransomware, use the Windows Unlocker tool. The tool should be started on a computer booted under Kaspersky Rescue Disk 2018. It is compatible with the graphic and text interface of Kaspersky Rescue Disk 2018.

To eliminate the risk being infected by ransomware in future, download and install Kaspersky Internet Security which features protection against screen-lockers.
