It is extremely important that you protect your operating system against Teeny Ransomware because this malicious threat is capable of rewriting the master boot record (MBR) of Windows, which can paralyze the entire system. Although it does not encrypt files – which is one of the false claims that the infection makes using a ransom note – your files are definitely at risk, and if you are not able to reinstall Windows properly, you might end up losing your files. This is why it is strongly recommended that you use the help of a more experienced friend or find a professional who can help you with the infection. Of course, if your personal files are backed up, you have nothing to worry about, and the best thing you can do to restore your system and delete Teeny Ransomware is to reinstall Windows right away. If you have the installer CD/DVD, the instructions below will help you take care of the issue right away.
If you live in Turkey, you are the prime target of Teeny Ransomware. Of course, it is not the only threat that you might have to remove from your operating system. Remember that there are tons of other infections that can corrupt the MBR or even encrypt your personal files for real. A few of the threats that are capable of doing that are Spiteful Doubletake Ransomware, Unit09 Ransomware, and BSS Ransomware. These threats can employ various security vulnerabilities and vulnerable spots to enter without any notice. It is particularly important to be cautious about spam emails because it appears that cyber criminals are often using them to spread malware. A fake email message is sent to a collection of targeted emails, and it is meant to convince the recipient to open an attachment, which, in fact, is the launcher of the threat. Needless to say, we suggest deleting spam emails without even opening them. Overall, regardless of how Teeny Ransomware enters the system, it always rewrites the MBR and displays a ransom note window. You cannot go past this window, and you cannot delete the infection. Most likely, the only thing you can do is reinstall Windows.
The ransom note that Teeny Ransomware displays using a window informs that files are encrypted, which we already know is a lie. Based on this lie, the attackers behind the threat are asking a ransom of 200$ to be transferred in Bitcoin to the 17cKsSrnERvQ6cGQXKUtWPfirmMyiwwaM7 Bitcoin wallet. They are also asking to email email@example.com after the payment so that the decryption key could, allegedly, be sent to the victim. This is a bunch of nonsense, and you do not want to pay the ransom at all. If you do that, your wallet will be lighter by 200 dollars, but nothing else will have changed. Your files are not encrypted, and you cannot remove Teeny Ransomware to fix the situation. What you can do is reinstall Windows, but you have to do it the right way so that you would have the chance of saving your personal files. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees that you will succeed at that.
If we could provide you with Teeny Ransomware removal instructions, we would, but we cannot. The best we can do is help you reinstall Windows, which is something you have to do on your own too. Hopefully, the control over your operating system is back into your hands in no time, and you can start protecting it against malware. First and foremost, we recommend installing legitimate and trustworthy anti-malware software. If you do that, your operating system will be guarded against all kinds of threats, not just file-encrypting or MBR-rewriting ransomware. Next, we suggest finding the best file backup for you. Whether it is an external hard drive or an online cloud, you need to keep your files backed up to ensure that they are safe even if malware invades. Finally, you also have to become more cautious, which might be the hardest thing to achieve. Always think two steps ahead and always anticipate malware attacks if you do not want to fall into a trap laid by cyber criminals.
