This page aims to help you remove Promorad2 Virus Ransomware for free. Our instructions also cover how any .Promorad2 file can be recovered.
If you are on this page, then this is most likely due to a recent infection with the Promorad2 Ransomware cryptovirus. This nasty piece of malware belongs to the file-encrypting Ransomware subcategory and, as per the information that we have, is spreading quickly with the help of different online transmitters. The article that you are about to read is dedicated to explaining to the victims of Promorad2 how this virus works and what can be done to protect themselves from it and to remove it. Generally, the Ransomware infections can sneak in the victim’s system in many ways. After they’ve entered the targeted computer system, they start scanning the computer’s hard disks for specific types of files – for example, documents, pictures, video and audio files, etc. Next, the malware begins to apply a certain unique encryption code to each and every one of them so that no program would be able to access the now encrypted data. As a result, these files may end up with a different extension and you will not be able to open them until you receive a special decryption code. That code, however, is kept in secret and the hackers behind the Promorad2 Ransomware demand a ransom to be paid if you want to receive it. In fact, as soon as the encryption process ends, a ransom note typically gets displayed on the victim’s screen. It contains a message from the criminals with payment instructions and a deadline. If you are reading this, however, we assume that you most probably aren’t ready to give your hard earned money to some hackers and are interested in instructions on how to remove Promorad2 and deal with its encryption without paying money to anyone. That’s why, in the removal guide you will see below, we will show you step-by-step guidance on how to remove the malware from your system. We will also provide you with some suggestions that may be able to recover some of the files encrypted by the cryptovirus and the good news is that it won’t cost you anything to give them a try.
The hackers may fool you!
As you’ve already understood, taking advantage of the users whose files have been encrypted is the primary goal of the hackers behind Promorad2. Once you agree to pay them, they may ask for more money once the initial ransom has been transferred and even trick you by sending you something else (usually another malware piece) instead of the decryption key. Unfortunately, there are many cases where the victims don’t receive anything in return for their money. Of course, we cannot decide for you how to act in your particular case. We can only provide you with an overall picture and a range of options for action to choose from. However, no matter how you decide to act, we advise you to first remove the virus itself. The deletion process will not affect the status of your files but it is simply necessary to eliminate the Ransomware if you want to continue to use your computer without fearing that any new files you may create or download would get encrypted as well.
Some threats reinstall themselves if you don't delete their core files. We recommend downloading SpyHunter to remove harmful programs for you. This may save you hours and ensure you don't harm your system by deleting the wrong files.
