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.July 19, 2016 at 3:03 am #67927
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:August 2, 2016 at 12:37 pm #68730
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.
