Common infection symptoms:

  • System crashes
  • Connects to the internet without permission
  • Installs itself without permissions
  • Can't be uninstalled via Control Panel Ransomware Ransomware must have entered your computer when you clicked something you should have ignored. For instance, ransomware programs often employ spam email campaigns for distribution. You may have installed this malicious infection on your PC yourself without even realizing it. However, now that you know which program you have to battle in this situation, it is time to remove Ransomware for good. In this description, we will show you how to get rid of the ransomware application, and we will also go through the most common aspects of this infection.

Needless to say, the best way to protect yourself from such infection is staying away from unfamiliar content. As mentioned, ransomware apps often use spam email messages to reach you. It is sometimes hard to tell a spam email message apart from an actual notification, say, from a financial institution. But you should know better than to click financial attachments. Usually, financial information is presented in the email message itself, or a bank would redirect you to its encrypted and safe website. Opening an attachment would only infect you with Ransomware, or any other malicious program for that matter.

This ransomware application belongs to a group of similar intruders, and it behaves just like Redshitline Ransomware, Ransomware, Ransomware, Green_ray Ransomware, Ransomware, ransomware, and so on. So, in a sense, you can see that the program which locked up your files comes from a big family of similar infections, and if you know how to remove one of these programs, you should be able to take care of the rest.

The worst about this infection is that there is no decryption tool available as of now. You must have noticed already that this application encrypts your files upon the installation. All the affected files get the .id-B4500913.{}.xtbl extension added, and you no longer can open them because the data inside gets scrambled using the RSA-2048 algorithm. The same was done by all the other programs from the group, so we are still waiting for public decryption tools to be created and uploaded online.

You may think that it would be possible restore your files by contacting the criminals behind this infection and paying the ransom fee. After all, this is what the notification on your screen says:

Your files and documents on PC are locked.
If you want to reset this operation, send one locked file to this email:

It also says that you have three days to reply to this message; otherwise, the criminals will destroy the decryption key and the file restoration will become impossible. Panic and threats are two strong factors in the success of the ransomware infections. However, paying is never the answer. The problem is that there is a good chance you may lose your money for good and get no decryption key in return. The connection between your computer and the program’s command and control center might be faulty. The criminals may receive money and do not issue the decryption key. Or the money may not reach them at all.

Thus, you should not take such risks. Please check out the instructions below and remove Ransomware from your computer. As you can see, the instructions are rather lengthy, but they are not too complicated. On the other hand, manual removal may not guarantee that all the malicious files are deleted from your PC. Not to mention, the “random .exe file” in the instructions may have any title out there. In some cases, the name may also start with “payload.” For instance, the file name might be Payload1.exe or Payload_c.exe.

To make sure you get rid of all the files and other threats, get yourself a licensed antispyware tool. Run a full system scan with it, and then it will definitely detect and remove all the potential threats automatically. What’s more, this computer security tool of your choice will safeguard your system against other dangerous infections in the future.

Finally, be sure to stay away from dangerous websites and other pages that are full of pop-ups and other annoying features. Do not open email messages and attachments that come from unknown parties. And should you have any questions about how to ensure your system’s safety, be sure to leave us a comment.
