How to Remove this Threat?
1. The first thing we recommend when infected by a ransomware threat is to attempt using Windows Restore. Using a restore point will return your computer to the state it was at the restore point date without affecting your files, only installed programs are affected (including some threats that were installed since).
2. If using Windows Restore fails, run your antivirus software, virus definitions are regularly updated by security companies. Although hackers and cyber criminals creating malware are always one step ahead, security companies are not far behind.
3. If you do not have an antivirus software, we highly recommend you get one, being properly protected is of growing importance since we now use the internet for financial transactions.
