If this infection ever touches your PC, you will notice that in a short while because your background will be changed and you will see a message from cyber criminals. In case this has already happened, hurry to get rid of Shade Ransomware no matter what the message says. It is very important to do that as soon as possible because this ransomware infection will start the moment your Windows loads up, which means that it will perform various activities behind your back day after day.

If your system is infected with this ransomware infection, there is no doubt that you will notice a message claiming that “All the important files on your disks were encrypted.” You will also be instructed to check the README.txt file which you will find on any of your disks.
