Redl Virus


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

Redl

Redl is a harmful virus program that won’t let you access your most important files unless you send a ransom payment to the hackers behind it. Redl keeps your files inaccessible through the use of an advanced encryption process.

Redl

The Redl Virus will encrypt your files

If this virus is present in your computer and it has already managed to lock up your files, you have probably already seen the ransom-demanding note that these threats show their victims. Redl, Nbes and Gesd are Ransomware programs which will force you to pay money for the decryption of your files. Redl won’t harm your data but will also not release it unless you pay. The payment, however, may not be a very good option (we will talk about it more in the next paragraphs) as you’d be putting a lot of money on the line. However, what other options are there to counteract the lockdown on your files. The Redl file encryption is a very sophisticated process and it cannot be reverted through any conventional means. The Redl file encryption cannot be decoded by any antivirus or antimalware program. However, a good security tool can help you get rid of the virus. Redl is a dangerous piece of malware that can lock new files you download or create on your computer. Because of this, Redl must be removed ASAP unless you want to get more of your data locked-up. The good news is that we can help you remove this threat and we can offer you two methods to do it – a manual and an automatic one. However, the best course of action would be to combine the two methods as this would give you the highest chances of fully eliminating this malware virus.

The infamous Ransomware virus category consists of malware programs that more often than not lead to serious data loss once they attack the users’ computers. A Ransomware wouldn’t delete or corrupt the files it targets – instead it would encrypt them. An encrypted file is inaccessible without the right decryption key and, needless to say, this key is in the hands of the people who create such viruses. Their goal is to intimidate you into paying money for this key in order to prevent your data from remaining locked forever. Many users do indeed follow the demands of the hackers, but what they typically don’t consider is that it is possible, if not likely, that the criminal wouldn’t actually provide them with a working decryption key. Of course, once the ransom money is sent to the online crook there’s no getting it back.

The Redl virus

The Redl virus is a harmful Ransomware threat that will encrypt your files using a military-grade encryption algorithm and then tell you to pay a ransom to release them. The Redl virus rarely shows visible symptoms during the encryption making its timely detection nearly impossible.

All of this leaves the Ransomware victims who have had some important data locked up by the virus in a very unpleasant situation. Even if they pay, they may not get to recover their files and, also, many of the Ransomware victims don’t have a choice since the requested sum is too high for them to afford to pay it. There, however, may be another option out there and it all starts with getting rid of the virus that’s responsible for the lock-down on your files. The instructions offered on this page will give you the necessary instructions to help you remove Redl. 

The Redl file encryption

The Redl file encryption is a software process that keeps you from accessing your data until you pay a ransom. The Redl file encryption can’t be reversed using regular software. To restore files from the Redl file encryption you need a private key.

Even if the Ransomware gets removed from the computer, the files that it has managed to lock-up won’t get automatically freed. However, with the virus gone, you will have the freedom to use any external backups you may have on other devices or to try out some of the suggested alternative recovery solutions that we have included in the data-restoration section of the guide. Unfortunately, the truth is that we cannot guarantee that even after you follow each of our instructions your files will get released. Still, trying the alternatives is free and won’t require you to spend money on a decryption key you may never really receive.

Remove Redl Ransomware


Step1

Some of the steps will likely require you to exit the page. Bookmark it for later reference.

Reboot in Safe Mode (use this guide if you don’t know how to do it).

Step2

After you open their folder, end the processes that are infected, then delete their folders. 

Note: If you are sure something is part of the infection – delete it, even if the scanner doesn’t flag it. No anti-virus program can detect all infections.

Step3

Hold the Start Key and R –  copy + paste the following and click OK:

notepad %windir%/system32/Drivers/etc/hosts

A new file will open. If you are hacked, there will be a bunch of other IPs connected to you at the bottom. Look at the image below:

hosts_opt (1)

If there are suspicious IPs below “Localhost” – write to us in the comments.

Type msconfig in the search field and hit enter. A window will pop-up:

msconfig_opt

Go in Startup —> Uncheck entries that have “Unknown” as Manufacturer.

  • Please note that ransomware may even include a fake Manufacturer name to its process. Make sure you check out every process here is legitimate.

Step4

Type Regedit in the windows search field and press EnterOnce inside, press CTRL and F together and type the virus’s Name. 

Search for the ransomware  in your registries and delete the entries. Be extremely careful –  you can damage your system if you delete entries not related to the ransomware.

Type each of the following in the Windows Search Field:

  1. %AppData%
  2. %LocalAppData%
  3. %ProgramData%
  4. %WinDir%
  5. %Temp%

Delete everything in Temp. The rest just check out for anything recently added. Remember to leave us a comment if you run into any trouble!
