Reloadit Pack Virus Description

The Reloadit Pack Virus is a Piracy Ransomware Trojan that claims to be involved in preventing PC users from downloading copyright-protected content, but the Reloadit Pack Virus actually is used to steal money and disable your computer without any legal justification for its behavior. SpywareRemove.com malware experts have determined that the Reloadit Pack Virus locks any computer that the Reloadit Pack Virus can attack successfully, including those that haven't been used for the crimes listed in its pop-up alert. Like any type of ransomware, the Reloadit Pack Virus doesn't need to be paid and should be disabled and removed with a good anti-malware tool, just as you would do with any equally-invasive type of Trojan.

The Reloadit Pack Virus: When the FBI Aren't as Involved as They Might Seem

The Reloadit Pack Virus is designed to attack residents of the United States with its pop-up, which includes references to the FBI and other USA-specific legalities. Even though the Reloadit Pack Virus claims to lock your computer because of illegal file downloads and related crimes, the Reloadit Pack Virus persists in displaying its warning automatically, no matter what your PC has (or has not) been used to accomplish.

SpywareRemove.com malware researchers also have found some superficial similarities between the Reloadit Pack Virus and other FBI-themed ransomware, such as the FBI Cybercrime Division Virus, the FBI Green Dot Moneypak Virus and the FBI Ultimate Game Card Virus. However, the Reloadit Pack Virus may not be directly-related to the above PC threats.

A Reloadit Pack Virus's pop-up asks you to pay a fine with a three-day time limit if you don't want to face other criminal charges, but the Reloadit Pack Virus can't contact the police and SpywareRemove.com malware experts never recommend paying the Reloadit Pack Virus's fine. Named after its preferred transaction method, the Reloadit Pack Virus purely is an Americanized version of the many Ukash Viruses that have been seen attacking the rest of the world in general, and Europe in particular.

Why You Don't Need to Unpack Your Wallet's Cash to Remove a Reloadit Pack Virus

While the Reloadit Pack Virus threatens to have encrypted 'all your files,' SpywareRemove.com malware research team notes that a variety of decryption tools are distributed freely by appropriate PC security institutions. More importantly than that, since the Reloadit Pack Virus isn't related to any type of law enforcement, even paying the Reloadit Pack Virus's fine doesn't guarantee that the criminals behind the Reloadit Pack Virus will be expend the effort of decrypting any encrypted files on your computer. The actual efficacy of this encryption attack is still under analysis, and SpywareRemove.com malware researchers note that, regardless, restoring your files from a recent backup should resolve the problem.

The Reloadit Pack Virus and its telltale pop-up must be disabled before you can begin the process of deleting your Reloadit Pack Virus with whatever anti-malware program you prefer. Disabling the Reloadit Pack Virus and similar Piracy Trojans can require various freely-available security techniques – such as Safe Mode – but can be accomplished without any need to pay a Reloadit Pack Virus's ransom.
