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

The most likely reason you are visiting this page is a malicious software program known under the name of .Tronas that has recently sneaked inside your computer and which has managed to place an advanced encryption code on most or all of your personal files, thereby making them inaccessible to you regardless of what software you may have tried using in order to open them. This can be particularly unpleasant and problematic if some of the locked-up files are related to your work or education or if they have sentimental value to you. .Tronas, the malware program responsible for all this belongs to the infamous Ransomware cryptovirus family – a subcategory of the Ransomware category of malicious programs.

The goal of this nasty infection is to blackmail its victims using the locked-up files and the access code to them as leverage. The victim of the infection is told in a ransom note displayed after all files have gotten locked that a certain sum of money needs to be sent to a provided crypto-wallet address or else the files will never again be accessible. Should the user give in to the blackmailer’s demands and make the payment, they would supposedly receive a unique key that can unlock all of the files that have been sealed by the malware. There, however, is an obvious problem with this potential course of action if the user decides to go for it – there is no guarantee that the said key for decrypting the locked-up files would really get sent to the victim of .Tronas Ransomware. And, of course, once you send the money to the blackmailing criminal, that money is gone regardless of whether you receive the means of recovering your files. Therefore, it is normally a good idea to try some other possible ways of handling this predicament without necessarily paying the ransom. One such suggested potential solution is the one that you will see explained in the removal guide for .Tronas Virus down below.

The truth about file recovery after a Ransomware attack

Sadly, there are simply no surefire solution or method that will guarantee the restoration of your files after a cryptovirus the likes of .Tronas has gotten to them. As we’ve already told you, even if you make the payment, there is nothing to guarantee that your files will become accessible again. Unfortunately, in this regard, the situation is similar with the recovery steps we’ve offered you inside the file-restoration section of our guide. We cannot promise that following the steps there would always result in your files getting recovered. However, if you go for the guide as the course of action of your choice, you should at least be able to get rid of the malware and make your computer clean. This is really important with regards to the safety of any new files you may create or download on your PC in the future. Besides, the guide we’ve offered you will also not involve sending a significant amount of money to some anonymous cyber crooks that may never really keep their promise of sending you back a data-decryption key.
