Remove Nova.Rambler.ru

Nova.Rambler.ru is a dubious search engine and a browser hijacker. It will enter your computer in software bundles and once it does, it will make unwanted changes to your browser and attempt to redirect you to sponsored pages. It does that because browser hijackers are created to generate traffic for those pages and in turn, make money. If you have this hijacker on your computer, you need to start paying closer attention to how you install free software because essentially, you installed Nova.Rambler.ru yourself. It will not harm your computer but the unnecessary changes and redirects can be frustrating. It should be noted that hijackers can sometimes expose users to malicious content as it does not check whether the sites you are redirected to are safe. You could end up with a serious malware infection. We suggest you remove Nova.Rambler.ru as soon as possible. Read more...

WinSnare – How to remove?

WinSnare is a Windows server that shares similarities with Snare, which is a legitimate application. Even though WinSnare can be called a copy of this good software, it should be noted that its developer InterSect Alliance International Pty Ltd has nothing to do with it. Instead, it seems that Snare might be used for unauthorized purposes. Even though specialists know quite much about this legitimate software WinSnare is based on, it is still unclear what the main purpose of WinSnare is. This is one of the reasons why WinSnare has been classified as a potentially unwanted program and why users should go to delete WinSnare as soon as possible. Of course, potentially unwanted applications are far from such extremely dangerous computer infections as Trojans, backdoor, and similar, but they might still perform undesirable activities on a user’s computer, so we suggest reading this article if you have not decided yet whether you should go to uninstall WinSnare or not.

TrumpLocker – How to Unlock files?

TrumpLocker is known to be a ransomware infection. It has been developed using Dynamite Malware Creation Kit, and it does not differ much from other threats that are known to be ransomware taking into account the way it acts even though it is a new malicious application. Speaking more specifically, it also enters computers and then encrypts files using the AES cryptography. It not only encrypts users’ files, but also disables various system features like Firewall, Task Manager, and Registry Editor. It does that so that users could not remove TrumpLocker easily. Do not worry, there is a way to implement the TrumpLocker removal. Unfortunately, it might be extremely hard or even impossible to unlock those files it encrypts because a unique encryption/decryption key is generated. Only cyber criminals know it. No matter you manage to decrypt your files or not, go to uninstall TrumpLocker from your PC to protect other files because you can never know when this threat strikes again. Read more...

VXLOCK Ransomware

VXLOCK Ransomware is a file-encrypting ransomware type of virus that could encrypt your important files. Ransomware viruses are extremely dangerous computer infections as they encrypt files and then demand that users pay to get them back. And in a lot of cases, users end up loosing their files. You can get infected by ransomware if you are not careful when opening email attachments or if you fall for a fake download. This is why specialists have been warning users for years about the dangers of being careless on the Internet. When ransomware strikes, many users get pressured into paying the ransom, which is not the right course of action, in our opinion. Ransomware developers are criminals who are not obligated to give you the decryption key even if you pay, so we cannot suggest paying. Best case scenario, you had backup, and can get your files back. If this ransomware infected your computer, remove VXLOCK Ransomware. Read more...

Netflix Ransomware

Netflix Ransomware is a file-encrypting ransomware that uses a rather unusual spread method. It infected your computer if you downloaded the application Netflix Login Generator, which would provide you with logins to Netflix, illegally. There are many users who are not willing to pay for the service and now they are stuck with encrypted files. If it got into your computer, it encrypted your files using complex encryption algorithms and now demands that you pay to get the files back. When dealing with ransomware developers, there are a few things you should be aware of. First of all, they are cyber criminals, which means they are not obligated to restore your files, even if you pay, and most likely will not. Secondly, if you pay, you will be essentially supporting their future projects. Which is why we do not recommend paying the ransom. Instead, delete Netflix Ransomware. Read more...
