I was wondering if Malwarebytes can remove the ransomware that changes your files to zepto? I don’t want to get the files back I just want to remove the malware.
Thanks in advance.
Welcome to the Security Center forum,
To answer your question. Yes, Malwarebytes will remove files associated with Zepto ransomware. It will detect them as Ransom.lock.
I definitely recommend that you read this tutorial to help you remove this infection from your computer:
Malwarebytes can not decrypt your files. It is an Antimalware-Software but not a Ransom-Decryptor. You can restore your Windows system. If you do not want to lose your files try the previous version feature. You can se how to do it on a german virus-entferner.de site: [external link removed] I will translate for you:
The Windows OS provides a built-in option of recovering previous versions of files. It can also be applied to folders. Just right-click on a file or folder, select Properties and hit the tab named Previous Versions. Within the versions area, you will see the list of backed up copies of the file / folder, with the respective time and date indication. Select the latest entry and click Copy if you wish to restore the object to a new location that you can specify. If you click the Restore button, the item will be restored to its original location.
After that, you can download a free scanner Paretologig PC Advisor and check your PC.
