The frustrating thing about this infection is that you could avoid it if you were more attentive when you browse the web or open your emails. According to our research, Trojan.Lockscreen.OJ usually gets distributed via spam email attachments and bundled downloads. Thus, do not be so hasty as to open email messages from unfamiliar senders, especially if they have attachments. Think twice before you click to open an attachment in that kind of message. Also, you should be very careful when you download programs from third-party websites. It is very common that freeware installers contain more than one application, and while, most of the time, those are adware and potentially unwanted freeware apps, it is also possible that software packages are exploited for Trojan.Lockscreen.OJ and other ransomware distribution.

When you get infected with this Trojan, your system will restart and then load again, this time with the infection running. Upon the installation, Trojan.Lockscreen.OJ configures your Windows Registry in a way that the infection processes are launched each time you turn on your computer. Thus, you will not be able to escape this no matter how many times you would restart your PC. In the end, you need to get rid of Trojan.Lockscreen.OJ if you want your computer to go back to normal.

Luckily, as mentioned above, Trojan.Lockscreen.OJ does not encrypt your files, which means you will not lose them. At first, it might seem that your files have disappeared because this Trojan changes file attribute to “Hidden.” This only means that your files are still there, only hidden from viewing them. This modification can be easily overrun by unchecking the Hidden box in the file properties menu. However, that is not the primary thing you should be worried about.

Trojan.Lockscreen.OJ successfully locks you out of your computer by displaying a misleading message mostly in French. The message says that you have to pay 100 euro to unlock your system, and you have to do it within the next 24 hours; otherwise you will not be able to access your files again. Needless to say, this message is a scam devised to scare you to the point you would give your money away without even thinking. Do not allow Trojan.Lockscreen.OJ to threaten you.
