This page aims to help you remove Crypy Ransomware for free. Our instructions also cover how any Crypy encrypted file can be recovered.

The main topic of the article below is the way a virus known as Crypy normally acts. To sum up the nature of this malicious program briefly, we would like to inform you that it is a Ransomware-type program, which is capable of encrypting your most precious files. The next action that you can expect from this terrible virus is the popping up of an alert message, which lets you know that your files have been hijacked and in order to have them back, you are supposed to pay ransom.

Software + nightmare = Crypy

To be honest, rarely could you come across a virus more malicious than any version of Ransomware. These are the most intrusive and bothering programs across the web. More and more users become infected with them thanks to the more and more flexible distribution methods. Once upon a time, when Ransomware as a software branch first originated in Russia, the main distribution method was via contagious emails that contained this malware either in the letter itself or in a contaminated attachment. Nowadays, as Ransomware is on its rise, you can catch a version of it from practically anywhere on the web – the same infected letters, drive-by downloads, shareware, torrents, contagious webpages, malvertising. Please note that if Crypy has come to you from an infected letter from your email, it has most probably entered your system with the help of a Trojan horse virus. Scan your device for Trojans, as you never know how exactly this malware may have contaminated your machine.

The encryption process

You are already aware of the fact that Crypy has made some of your files inaccessible. It chooses which ones will be encrypted after it has scanned all of your disks and drives and has concluded which ones exactly you most regularly use. Then all these files get enlisted and when the process of encoding begins, the program encrypts all of them one by one. After the entire list gets encoded, Crypy generates a very frightening ransom notification that consists of payment deadlines and some more details. In some cases some affected users could perceive the coming danger, because they might experience a significant slowdown of their entire system and might be wise enough to take a look into their Task Manager for suspicious processes. If the program consuming the most resources is unknown to you and therefore seems fishy, it’s most likely a virus. In case you happen to be one of these users, the best you can do is turn off your PC immediately, close all the network and other connections, which may result in spreading this malware, and then refrain from turning on your computer again before you have managed to solve the issue. Unfortunately, in most of the recorded cases, the infections go unnoticed until all the targeted files have been encrypted and the ransom notification pops up.

Could this process be reversed? Is it possible to decrypt the encrypted data?

This is a very sensitive matter because “yes” and “no” are both correct answers to the questions above. Generally, it is always possible to remove this malware infection. For that purpose we are offering you to follow the instructions in our Guide below. Usually, the Ransomware-type viruses could be removed if you follow the instructions closely. Getting back your encoded data, though, is a completely different story. No Removal Guide, no expert, no software could ever guarantee the safe recovery of your encrypted data. To be completely precise, even paying the requested sum of money may not give you the control over your files once more. All the possible turns of events depend on the intentions of the hackers, who are disturbing you and the way they have programmed Crypy to encrypt your files. Sadly, you may never be able to access your data again as most commonly, hackers do not have good intentions and are not helpful at all. They are just after your money. Neither the payment of the demanded ransom, nor the removal of the virus will guarantee the recovery of your files.

What we advise you to do

Never risk sending your hard-earned money to any criminals, including the cyber ones. These people are breaking the law and you cannot expect them to be honest and trustworthy. Try all the possible measures against such viruses before you resort to paying the ransom. Consult a specialist, give our Removal Guide below a try, just don’t make the hackers believe their actions could bring them even more money by giving them yours, because it may encourage them to harass other people and blackmail them for their money.
