Czech Ransomware

Czech Ransomware is another serious threat that has been developed by cyber criminals recently. Specialists have put it into the category of ransomware infections because its major goal is to extort money from users. Cyber criminals know that users will not send money to them voluntarily, so they have created Czech Ransomware in such a way that it would place the screen-locking message and thus will not allow users to access their programs, files, and use the computer normally. If you have already encountered Czech Ransomware and see this message covering your Desktop, you have probably also noticed a line saying that all your files have been encrypted. The version of Czech Ransomware we have tested does not do that; however, there is a possibility that cyber criminals will release the file-encrypting version in the future too. To be frank, we do not recommend paying money to cyber criminals even if your files have really been locked because there are many cases when nothing happens after a user makes a payment.

As you already know, Czech Ransomware will put a screen-locking message but will not encrypt any of your personal files. The entire message is written in Czech, so specialists make a conclusion that this computer infection is targeted at people living in the Czech Republic primarily. As this infection spreads through the web, users from other countries might encounter it too. It is a must to delete Czech Ransomware as soon as possible no matter where you live. Some users believe that they will get rid of this threat if they pay the ransom of 200 CZK (approximately 8.5 USD) via the Paysafecard, which is a popular prepaid payment method that does not require the bank account or credit card, but it is not true. We can assure you that Czech Ransomware will not delete itself from your computer, so you should keep your money in your pocket and ignore the message saying that “If you do not meet all the requirements set out in 2 days, your decryption key is deleted and you never see your files and bills again.” Do not worry; it will disappear from your Desktop immediately after you erase Czech Ransomware from your computer fully, and you could use your computer again.

Do not waste your time trying to get rid of the screen-locking message and Czech Ransomware by restarting your computer because this threat launches automatically after the system restart. It is capable of doing that because it creates the Value in the system registry. To be more specific, you will find it if you move to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. This is, of course, not the only modification this ransomware infections makes. If you open the %APPDATA% directory, you will also find a new folder whose name consists of four random symbols there. It belongs to the ransomware infection.

All ransomware infections act very similarly because they all seek to scare users into paying money. If you do not want to allow such a threat to enter your PC and thus really lose your personal files, you should stay away from spam emails because ransomware infections are often distributed through them. The executable is usually presented as a decent-looking spam email attachment, for example, it might even pretend to be a harmless document, which explains why so many users open these attachments and infect their computers with malware. Unfortunately, it might not be enough to ignore spam emails because ransomware infections might find other ways to enter computers as well. Therefore, we highly recommend installing an antimalware tool on the computer too.

It is not very hard to delete Czech Ransomware; however, you will have to start your Windows in Safe Mode with Networking first (please find the instructions that will help you to do that below). Once you have entered this mode, use our manual removal guide to erase the ransomware infection or download a reputable antimalware scanner, such as SpyHunter, from the web and launch it. An automatic method is quicker, and you will not need to delete other threats from your PC separately if you scan your PC with a reputable scanner because they will all be removed together with Czech Ransomware.
