You want to be careful when opening emails because Ransomware could hide inside. This malicious infection might be concealed as a document file, and even the file’s icon might match. If you are tricked into opening the file, you could be asked to enable macros. If that happens, close the file and remove the email immediately. Unfortunately, the infection might be executed without macros too, in which case, just opening the file could lead to execution. Of course, if you open the file you downloaded, and you realize that it does not reveal what you expected, you might suspect that something is not right. Hopefully, you realize that you need to delete Ransomware right away. If you do not get rid of the launcher file, your personal files can be encrypted silently, without you suspecting a thing. If that has happened already, the only thing you might be able to do is to eliminate the threat.

Will your files be decrypted when you remove Ransomware from your PC? No, they will not. They will not be decrypted if your delete the “.id-[ID].[].bkpx” extension either. This extension is appended to the original files’ names, and it includes a unique ID number that appears to identify the victim. You are asked to send this ID number to to get more information on how to recover your personal files. This is the instruction that you face when Ransomware launches a window with a ransom note. The message declares that if attackers do not respond within 24 hours, a second message should be sent to We do not recommend sending messages to either of these addresses because if you do, the attackers can learn your own email address. If you are determined to contact the attackers, at least create an email account that you will not use ever again after you are done communicating with cyber criminals. If you do not take this advice, you will, most likely, suffer an avalanche of spam emails for a long time.

Our malware experts have seen the Ransomware ransom note many times before because it is identical to the ones used by Dharma Ransomware (.bkpx extension), Ransomware, Ransomware, Ransomware, and many many other infections that belong to the so-called Crysis/Dharma ransomware family. The only thing that changes within the ransom notes is the main email address, which is also the main feature that helps us distinguish the identical threats from one another. It is difficult to say who controls these threats, but it is possible that different parties are responsible for different infections. On the other hand, it is also likely that one creator is responsible for a bunch of infections. In any case, trusting them to restore files is the wrong move. If you want to waste your money, do so at your own risk. If you do not want to take the risk of losing your money along with your files, focus on removing Ransomware.

Removing malware is rarely easy, but in the case of Ransomware, it all pretty much depends on the launcher file. Where is it? What is its name? If you can answer these questions, you should have no trouble getting rid of the infection. Just make sure that you follow the instructions below very carefully, and if you stumble upon obstacles that prevent you from succeeding, post a comment below with a clear question so that our research team could help you. There’s also an alternative method to remove Ransomware – you can install anti-malware software. It is created to automatically identify and eliminate malicious components, and so you can rely on it to perform full removal. Furthermore, this software can provide you with “anti-malware” services, which means that it can protect you against all kinds of malicious infections. And what about your files? If there are any left that were not encrypted, back them up immediately. If backups exist already, replace the corrupted files with them.
