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

If you value your personal data which you keep stored on your computer’s hard-disk and if you don’t like the idea of getting blackmailed into paying significant amounts of money to anonymous hackers, then you may want to read the following paragraphs and learn about the .Corp cryptovirus of the Ransomware family which is what we are going to be focusing on in the current article. 

.Corp File Virus Ransomware

So, what exactly is .Corp? What does a Ransomware cryptovirus mean? Well, a cryptovirus is a software program created with the criminal intention of locking up the personal files of the user of the infected computer through a complex encryption and then making a ransom demand to that user. The idea is that the malware victim would be forced to pay the requested money if they want to be able to access their files once again. Normally, the hackers who develop malicious programs like .Corp program their cryptoviruses to generate a notification on the infected computer’s desktop once all data has been sealed, which note informs the user about what has just happened and gives them strict instructions on what they are supposed to do in order to complete the demanded ransom payment. Of course, if you are in such a situation yourself right now, you may think that paying the money is the quickest and easiest way to handle the situation if the demanded sum is not that high. Now, we can’t tell you what to do but you need to bear in mind that paying doesn’t necessarily equal recovering your files. There are simply no guarantees when it comes to Ransomware viruses like .Corp. For instance, you may pay the money but the hackers may refuse to actually unlock all of your data. Therefore, if you are interested in exploring potential alternative solutions, we advise you to take a look and try out the removal guide for .Corp that is available right below.

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.

How to Decrypt .Corp files

We have a comprehensive (and daily updated) guide on how to decrypt your files. Check it out here.

The guide we have included on this page should allow you to successfully eliminate the insidious .Corp infection but we need to inform you that the sole removal of the malicious program is likely not going to result in the decryption of your data. To unlock the files, you will likely need to try something else and this is actually where the tricky part is – there are simply no universal ways of dealing with the encryption of every given Ransomware cryptovirus (and there are many of those out there). What we can do is give you some directions and some suggested file-recovery methods but, just as it is with paying the ransom, there can be no guarantee that you will get your data back. Still, the main difference between trying the available alternatives and paying the ransom is that if you go for the former course of action, you will at least not risk your money by sending it to the anonymous cyber criminals who are trying to harass you and blackmail you and you will also not be further sponsoring them and their criminal agendas with your money.

SUMMARY:

Name .Corp
Type Ransomware
Danger Level High (Ransomware is by far the worst threat you can encounter)
Symptoms A Ransomware would hardly show any visible symptoms until the encryption is fully done.
Distribution Method Any fake ad, spam message or pirated program could be a potential source of Ransomware.
Data Recovery Tool Currently Unavailable
Detection Tool

If the guide doesn’t help, download the anti-virus program we recommended or try our free online virus scanner. Also, you can always ask us in the comments for help!
