[bannerTop]

Welcome to our Koolova Ransomware removal guide. The following instructions will aid you in removing the unwanted software from your PC.

The article below is about some of the most horrific infections that rage around the web nowadays – the Ransomware-caused ones. Actually, the particular one we will be discussing below is caused by a specific version of ransom-requiring malware – Koolova Ransomware. You can read everything about the horrors provoked by this type of viruses, which include file encryption and ransom-demanding, harassing messages. Indeed, there is no threat as hazardous as the different versions of Ransomware that you may catch in one way or another while browsing the web. Actually, there may be several types of Ransomware-based viruses, all of which we will describe below and will point out the main subgroup Koolova belongs to. We are also going to explain why these various viruses are categorized as one and the same malware type.

Experts divide Ransomware in the following groups:

What gathers all these programs in one and the same malware category is the fact that, all of these programs, including Koolova, infect your computer automatically and stop you from accessing something on your computer: either your screen, or your data. Actually, both prospects sound quite disturbing. What’s more, such programs always ask for ransom to undo whatever wrong they have done on your devices, thus their alias – “Ransomware”.

Could such software be counteracted in any way?

To be completely honest, it may be impossible to completely undo what Koolova has done to you, your files and your PC. In the worst case, a full reinstall of your computer might be required. As far as we know, even professionals in the field may have difficulty dealing with such a serious cyber threat. Actually, the most important tip in case of such a malicious infection is NOT to pay the hackers immediately after you receive the ransom-demanding message. Bear in mind that the future of your files will be insecure even if you pay the ransom. That is why you should seek other potential solutions to this issue. Such solutions include:

And most importantly, do not expect to recover your data as that may never happen. Even if you remove the virus, it might not be possible to recover your files, but it is worth trying. Learn to create and keep copies of your essential files in the future, so that you won’t be bothered by such malware and its threats.
