Mancros Ransomware is a screen-locking infection that tries to convince its victims that the files on the infected operating systems are encrypted. Because the infection paralyzes the Desktop using a full-screen window that you cannot close in a normal manner, you might be tricked into thinking that your files have been corrupted. With so many dangerous ransomware infections (e.g., Wana Decrypt0r Ransomware or Decryption Assistant Ransomware) on the loose, it is easy to fall for this scam. If a real ransomware slithers in, it usually allows you to check the encrypted files, and ransomware threats that are capable of locking screens are very rare. In conclusion, if you receive a message/notification suggesting that your files are encrypted, the first thing you want to do is assess the situation. Unfortunately, the creator of this ransomware has thought about that, and you might be deterred from checking things out. Please continue reading, and you will learn more about this, as well as the removal of Mancros Ransomware. Note that is sometimes recognized by names Mancrosai4939 Ransomware and Mancros+AI4939 Ransomware.
Mancros Ransomware Ransomware slithers in – and it is not yet clear how it does that – it immediately locks the screen using a scary full-screen window. An image of a skull is represented along with a message suggesting that your personal files were encrypted. You are requested to make a payment of $50 in Bitcoins within 4 days. The message also informs that if you try to “stop, kill, remove or close the application,” your computer will be “trashed;” whatever that means. That is exactly what might deter you from closing the window and realizing that your files are not encrypted. Fortunately, there are a few things in this message that might help you realize that it is misleading. First of all, it does not provide you with any details on the “bitcoin account” to which you supposedly need to transfer the money. Also, there is no information explaining what will happen when you pay the ransom. Though it is implied that you would get your “files back” by paying it, there is no explanation as to how that would happen.
If you hold down the Alt key and then click the Tab key once, you will be introduced to a list of open windows. If you were not using your computer before the malicious Mancros Ransomware slithered in, you will only see the minimized version of the screen-locking window, as well as the Desktop window. Using the tab key – or the mouse – select Desktop and tap Enter on the keyboard. This will help you unlock your screen. Right after that, you need to launch the Task Manager and terminate the malicious process linked to the screen-locker. If you do that successfully, you can then delete Mancros Ransomware, and we recommend doing that as soon as possible. Although this infection is not incredibly malicious, it is controlled by cyber criminals who are unpredictable. Do you want them to have access to your operating system? If you do not, you need to delete the ransomware as soon as possible. The good news is that you do not even need to be experienced to get rid of this devious infection yourself.
Can you identify the launcher of the malicious Mancros Ransomware? If you can, go ahead and remove it as soon as you disable the screen-locker and kill the malicious process. If you can perform these tasks, the elimination of this threat should not scare you. However, if you are having difficulties with the detection of the malicious .exe file, manual removal might seem intimidating and complicated. If that is the case, you want to look into anti-malware software. In fact, we recommend using this software even if you are experienced and can delete Mancros Ransomware manually. This software can fully clean your operating system from all existing infections (others could be present as well), and it can guarantee full-time protection in the future. Remember that there are far worse ransomware threats out there, ones that could encrypt your files permanently, and if you do not protect your operating system, the chances of you attracting this kind of malware are much greater.
