I see the new Decrypter on the main bleeping webpage.

Should this be already on your desktop to use in just in case of the ransome ware.

or should it be left alone until later.

If you're not infected with Radamant ransomware there is no point in downloading and saving the decrypter tool just in case. There are so many ransomware variants out now with various fix tools...your desktop would be wallpapered in them.

Decrypter tools are readily available if needed. Further, they are frequently updated and the most current version should always be downloaded and used when needed.

Thankyou for the reply, Reason why I was asking the question is about 3 yrs ago I got hit with the Fake FBI mess and I did not know what to do.

I was scared to pieces.

Any how I shut my pc down and called the repair place that I deal with and they fixed my pc back and got it runnning

and cleaned the virus off.

So this is why I asked this question about the Tool.

I was also curious if I ever got the bad virus again like that how in the world would I ever get it off.

Because My pc was totally locked up.

You see.

Well you have been a member of our Bleeping Computer community since October 2013...about a year after that infection. Now if you ever have a problem again, you can get all the help you need right here instead of that repair place.

If you have been a member at that time we would have referred you to our removal guides.
- FBI MoneyPak Ransomware or the Reveton Trojan Removal Guide
- FBI Cybercrime Division Ransomware Removal Guide
- Urausy FBI Ransomware Infection Removal Guide

Or if you preferred step by step individual help, we could have provided that in our Malware Removal forum.

Thankyou very much,

 

I called the repair place because like I said the pc was pretty much locked, and no matter what I did I could not shut it off.

so I closed the laptop lid down and unplugged the thing.

then called repair shop and they did fix the laptop back up and running tho.

I was glad for that.

 

But let me ask you if it happen again that the fake FBI virus happen to me again how in the world would I down load anything

from you. 

I could not get back into my laptop. when the FBI virus popped up on my screen.

Let me say it was FAST to.

I had not been on my laptop but I few secs.

and it also turned on my web cam and I ducked my head figured it was trying to see what I looked like.

you should have seen me I shut the lid down real fast.

funy now but not funny then.

If you had the fix tool on your desktop, it would not do you any good if you couldn't access the computer to use it.

Our Malware Response Team can provide step by step instructions with other tools which would allow access to an unbootable or ransomware locked computer. You would be instructed to download whatever you need from a working computer (from a friend, another family member, library, etc) and save it to a usb drive. Then you would be given instructions to create a bootable USB drive and continue from there.

For example, Grinler, the site owner of BC, created this self-help guide which uses a bootabe USB drive...Your computer has been locked Ransomware Removal Guide using HitmanPro.Kickstart.

Yes you could use your Windows 10 computer to download files and save to a usb drive.

Usb drives are relatively cheap these days and can be purchased from a wide variety of stores (Best Buy, Walmart, Office Depot) or online.

They come in various sizes. For what you would want it for, a small 2-3GB would be more than enough.

Best Buy USB drives
Stables USB drives

Larger capacity USB or external hard drives are great for backing up your personal data, music, photos, etc. which everyone should be doing especially with the widespread emergence of ransomware infections.
