Remove “Seu windows foi sequestrado” Screenlocker Virus

Seu windows foi sequestrado” is a screen locker virus which limits the access to your computer. It asks to contact a fake support technician in order to unlock your PC and provides an email address. Unlike other tech support scams this one does not provide any phone number.

The virus says that your computer has been hijacked and therefore banned due to unusual activity. However, in reality your computer is safe and the access is only hindered by the locker itself. Never contact the fake support as they will try to extort money before unlocking your computer. Instead, remove this threat yourself and then secure your machine.

Removing this threat is relatively easy as it is not as destructive as most other malware types. We have an automatic removal and protection tool available below. We have also prepared a manual removal guide. However, the manual option only removes the threat and the symptoms but does not secure your computer from further infections. Therefore, we strongly recommend choosing the automatic option as it will also protect your machine in the future.
