Hello James D Costanza,  This winlock Virus is getting famous these days and lots of system infected due to this virus. This virus was originally developed in Spain. This virus worked in a way that firstly it encrypting data on a targeted computer and paralyzing it with a message on screen, which accused the user of having viewed illegal content. The victim of the attack was then asked to pay a ransom in the guise of a fine before the machine could be unlocked with a decrypting programmed. Still there is no antivirus  to  fight out with this virus,so no security protocol till now.

Hello, James!

 Winlock virus mainly exploits the users by tricking them to pay with money to recover computer to the previous state, which is absolutely false. To avoid possible infection with Trojan-Ransom family(Winlock) virus, download and install Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, which includes very high level of protection against various types of malware.
