    Malware-Cryptor.Win32.Vals.5 detected in my system

    Malware-Cryptor.Win32.Vals.5 has been detected in my system by the Kaspersky antivirus, that I have installed in my system with Windows XP SP3 operating system. The problem is that the antivirus detects the infection, but when I try to delete the infection, the antivirus simply hangs. I cant understand why this is happening. I need someone to give suitable solutions to this problem as soon as possible.

    Malware-Cryptor.Win32.Vals.5 is a trojan

    Malware-Cryptor.Win32.Vals.5 is a trojan and it manipulates the registry settings of the system components that have been installed. This may be the reason why the antivirus hangs when you try to delete the infection. It must have altered the settings of the antivirus too. If Malware-Cryptor.Win32.Vals.5 has been detected in your system, then I suggest you to format the system to get rid of the infection as this is the ultimate method to remove trojans from the system.

    Spyware doctor will help

    Spyware doctor will help if Malware-Cryptor.Win32.Vals.5 has been detected in your system. This is an anti-malware and are totally different from the normal antivirus. They stay in the background and look out for the malicious activities that are going on within the system. The applications or programs that are causing the particular malicious activities are simply eradicated from the system, thus keeping your system secure.

    The manual deletion is tidy

    The manual deletion is tidy because Malware-Cryptor.Win32.Vals.5 is a trojan and they seem as genuine programs from outside. But, internally they work as a very destructive weapon for the attacker. If Malware-Cryptor.Win32.Vals.5 is detected in the system, then I suggest you to uninstall the antivirus, restart the system and then, reinstall the antivirus. Then, update the antivirus and after that run an entire system scan and just remove all the infections that are detected during the scan. Hopefully your problem will be solved.
