Nacro Virus

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

Getting attacked by Ransomware can be very unpleasant and incredibly difficult to deal with. Not only will be deprived of the access to your personal data, but your privacy and personal (or professional) information is seriously compromised. One of the latest Ransomware threats that have been released goes under the name of Nacro. This infection is a cryptovirus, and as such, it can secretly encrypt the files on the infected computer with a very sophisticated encryption code. By doing so, it prevents the users from opening or using their information in any way. Once the file encryption process completes, the attackers ask for a ransom payment in order to restore the files to their previous state.

Luckily, on this page we are happy to provide you with some alternative methods which don’t involve giving your hard-earned money to some anonymous crooks. Below, you will find a detailed removal guide, which you can use to remove Nacro and potentially recover some of the encrypted files.

After the ransomware is done encrypting your files, it will leave a _readme.txt file with instructions.

Computer infections such as Nacro, Nasoh and Coharos have one distinctive trait that most other malware categories lack. Unlike Trojans, Rootkits or Spyware, this malware type is relatively harmless in terms of direct damage. It uses encryption as its main tool, which is actually not a harmful procedure. Many people use encryption on a day-to-day basis to keep their files safe. Also, this is what keeps the data you share with other over the Internet safe and inaccessible to third parties. This is the reason why the majority of antivirus programs available do not flag the file encryption as a malicious process, so they normally do nothing to stop it. This helps the Ransomware to apply its encryption without getting disturbed.

In addition to that, you probably won’t notice any visible symptoms that could indicate the presence  of the Ransomware on your computer, and that’s one more trait of this malware category – stealth. The infection can silently encrypt your files, one by one, right under your nose, only to surprise you with a frightening ransom note when the encryption process is finished.

The goal of this nefarious blackmailing scheme is one – to make you give your money to the hackers behind it. The hackers behind the Ransomware ask the victims to send them money in the form of cryptocurrencies such BitCoin since such transactions cannot be traced, and this allows the criminals to remain completely anonymous. When people keep paying money to the blackmailer with the hopes of having their documents restored, however, they only encourage the crooks to keep developing Ransomware viruses and unleashing them upon more unsuspecting online users.

For this reason we often advise the people who land on our site to exhaust their other alternative options of dealing with the Ransomware, before deciding on paying the ransom payment. If you don’t’ know where to start, you can use the removal guide right after this article. It will certainly assist you in detecting and deleting Nacro, which is, by no means, a small thing. In addition to that, the guide might also help you recover some of your encrypted files wherever this is possible. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that this will be the case for each and everyone of you, but it won’t hurt if you try.
