It is very unfortunate that in this time and age, we have to deal with the likes of Npsg Ransomware. It is a ransomware infection that will not leave you alone unless you pay the ransom fee. Of course, you should never pay a single cent to these criminals, so you need to remove Npsg Ransomware at once. You can find the manual removal instructions at the bottom of this description. However, if you want to focus on restoring your files, your options depend on what you did in order to prepare for this kind of infection.
Of course, you might ask why you are supposed to prepare in the first place. However, with the ransomware infections so prevalent, it is important to regularly back up your files. You can save copies on external hard drives, or you can set up a cloud drive where the files would be uploaded automatically the moment you create them. Either way, it is necessary to be ready because things like Npsg Ransomware can enter your system at any time.
At the same time, it would help you if you learned more about ransomware distribution practices. The point is that ransomware requires your participation to reach your system. Most of the time, Npsg Ransomware and other similar infections employ spam emails to reach their victims. The same tactic was used by Kodc Ransomware, MOOL Ransomware, Btos Ransomware, and other infections from the STOP Ransomware family. Since Npsg Ransomware comes from the same group too, we more or less know what to expect from this program.
Also, it is not that hard to prevent ransomware apps from entering your system, but users still manage to get infected with these programs because they don’t understand how dangerous random attached files might be. Of course, you could say sometimes it is hard to remain vigilant when you open multiple files every single day (especially if it is part of your job). But that is why you can always get a new habit of scanning new files before opening them. If a security program of choice detects something suspicious about the file you want to open, it’s a good idea to remove it at once.
If you are unlucky enough to get infected with Npsg Ransomware, get ready to face the general ransomware infection protocol. That is to say, the infection will lock up your files with powerful encryption, and it will demand that you pay the ransom. The ransom note will be dropped in the C:\ directory, and here’s what it has to say:
Don’t worry, you can return all your files!
All your files like photos, databases, documents and other important are encrypted with strongest encryption and unique key.
The only method of recovery files is to purchase decrypt tool and unique key for you.
Price of private key and decrypt software is $980.
Discount 50% available if you contact us first 72 hours, that’s price for you is $490.
The truth is that all programs in the STOP Ransomware family use practically identical ransom note. Also, there is a very good chance that you cannot even contact these criminals because their server connection is too shaky. So, there is no need to consider sending them money.
There is a public decryption tool for this infection that can decrypt files encrypted by an offline key. Please note that not all files will be encrypted by the offline key, so it might not be possible to restore everything. Thus, you should either refer to your file backup or address a professional who can give you more file recovery options.
