Encryption ransomware is quite complex and it is a form of ransom malware with advanced encryption. It is used by ransomware creators to encrypt the data saved in an infected device. The process of removing encryption ransomware does require some self-training if one wants to do it on their own. Ransomware creators mostly give the victims around 96 hours to pay the amount they demand and to retrieve that data. It also does not mean that removing ransomware will decrypt all the files so one has to be sure about not giving in to the attackers. Kaspersky Total Security.
- The first step of removing Encryption Ransomware is to download a reputable software tool that can help with disabling and deleting ransomware attacks. This has to be done through another device so as to keep the infected device disconnected from the internet.
- The next step is to remove encryption ransomware from the device is to copy the software installer file and then it has to be installed again on the device that has been infected by ransomware. This should be done using an empty flash drive to prevent infecting any other files.
- Once installed, one has to select all the infected files from the computer and delete them permanently. Next, one should also run a full scan on the computer.
- Once, the infected files are gone, one has to look for ways of retrieving the data. One of the easiest ways is to copy back to the computer the backup files saved using services like Google Drive or DropBox. Some do so offline in a flash drive.
- In case, one does not have any backups, then one can download a data recovery software and retrieve the deleted files on the computer. This can be done because encryption ransomware deletes the original files after copying them so there are high chances that they can be retrieved again by using a good data recovery tool.
