CryptoLite ransomware removal instructions

What is CryptoLite?

Discovered by MalwareHunterTeam, CryptoLite is a ransomware-type virus that stealthily infiltrates the system and encrypts most stored files, thereby making them unusable. In doing so, CryptoLite appends filenames with the ".encrypted" extension (e.g., "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg.encrypted"). An identical extension is used by many other ransomware-type viruses, such as GenoCheats, WantMoney, and MoneroPay, however, this does not necessarily mean that these viruses are related. Immediately after encryption, CryptoLite opens a pop-up window containing a ransom-demand message.
