  • Can't be uninstalled via Control Panel Ransomware Ransomware is a file-encrypting computer infection which has been named after the extension it appends to all files it encrypts. Specialists have found out quickly that these files are usually various pictures, all kinds of documents, and media files. Evidently, it targets those files which are the most important to users. This is, of course, done not without reason. All malicious applications that are put under the category of ransomware are nasty infections which do all it takes to get money from users. In the case of Ransomware, it locks those files which users consider the most valuable. To make it impossible for users unlock files for free, it uses the AES-256 encryption key, which is known to be one of the strongest keys today. A free decryption tool has not been released by specialists yet too, so it might be true that it will not be possible to get a single file back. Of course, it does not mean that users whose computers are infected with Ransomware have to go to send money to the author of the ransomware infection. Actually, it is not even advisable to do that because a decryption tool might not be sent to those users who make a payment despite the fact that the message left on a window opened by Ransomware claims differently.

Users are not told that their files have been encrypted because of the entrance of a ransomware infection. Instead of telling the truth, Ransomware opens a ransom note claiming that all files have been encrypted “due to a security problem.” Users are also told that they can get a decryption tool to unlock those encrypted files by sending a unique ID to and paying a certain amount of money in Bitcoins within 72 hours. Users should also get instructions explaining how to do that, if we believe the information left on Desktop. The window opened by Ransomware can be easily closed, and a file decryption instructions.jpg (it contains an email and two words “Text me” only) dropped on the computer after the encryption of files can be easily removed. Unfortunately, we cannot say that it is a piece of cake to decrypt files. You could only get those files back if you have a backup of files located somewhere outside the infected computer. Do not forget that you could transfer copies of backed up files to the system only after the deletion of the file-encrypting threat because files might be encrypted again, and you will need to start the recovery of files all over again.

Just like other ransomware infections using emails, for example, Ransomware, Ransomware, and Ransomware, Ransomware enters computers illegally. In most cases, it comes in spam emails disguised as a harmless file, usually an important document, e.g. an invoice. It does not enter the system immediately after a spam email is opened by a user. It only ends up on computers when users open attachments they find in these emails, so it can be said that users contribute to the entrance of this malicious application to a great extent as well. Hundreds of different file-encrypting threats are spread through spam emails, so a new threat might sneak onto your PC too if you do nothing. What security specialists want you to do is to go to install a security application. Suspicious emails, especially if they are sent by unknown senders, should be ignored completely too even though they are not placed in the Spam folder because spam sometimes manage to evade this folder. This does not make those emails less dangerous, of course.

Go to remove Ransomware no matter what because it might hit again and make your new files unusable. Luckily, it does not apply important changes which users could not undo themselves, but it might still be quite hard to get rid of it because its files might have random names, and they might be located in several different places. We hope the manual removal guide located below the article will help users to delete Ransomware manually, but if it happens that they find it impossible to locate files belonging to ransomware, it is highly recommended to employ an automatic malware remover, such as SpyHunter. It will only need a minute to clean the system.
