If you get your files locked by a Ransomware infection such as .Truke, .Horon or .Neras, then you should be well aware of the options that you have at your disposal in terms of how to counteract the infection and attempt to normalize things the best way you can. In order to handle this situation in the best way possible, there are several things you need to know about the Ransomware viruses. First is the fact that they use file-encryption to lock up the data present in your HDD. This is what allows them to later blackmail you through a message displayed on your screen. The message contains instructions related to the ransom you are supposed to pay for the release of the files. According to the criminals blackmailing you, upon paying the money, you will receive a special access key capably of opening all of your locked files. Of course, if you do not pay, the hackers would never send you the decryption key and your files would, supposedly, remain locked forever.

Removing .Truke Virus Ransomware manually.

There are different opinions on whether paying the ransom isn’t actually an option worth considering. Due to the nature of the situation and the fact that each case is unique and different, we can’t give you a definitive answer here. Typically, paying the ransom carries the risk of sending the money without really receiving anything in return. The hackers may simply accept your “payment” and refuse to help you with your files’ decryption. Also, even if they do send you some decryption key, the said key may not work properly, and, needless to say, even if his happens, you cannot expect any money refunds.

On the flip side, you can try to remove the infection and seek alternative decryption methods. This is where our guide for removing .Truke Virus that you can find below may come in handy.
