Ransomware Removal Service Testimonials
My computer screen had an unusual error window ” Your personal files are encrypted!” It also had a countdown clock telling me how long I had to pay up which was $300.00. I shut down my laptop and gave Hyphenet a call. They diagnosed my computer with CryptoLocker ransomware. Luckily they helped me restore my files and put proper antivirus software on my computer. They also made sure my files were being properly backed up.
I turned my computer on, checked my email and found this error message, “WARNING your personal files are encrypted.” I didn’t like what I was reading, so I turned off my computer and disconnected it from the network. I looked up the message and called Hyphenet. I learned I had the “Maktub Locker ransomware.” Hyphenet quickly came to my business and removed the ransomware using my backed up files. They also updated my security for further prevention.
I had an error message on my laptop saying “Your computer has been locked due to suspicion of illegal content downloading and distribution.” “In order to resolve the situation in an above-mentioned way you should pay a fine of $300.00.” They also insisted I pay using MoneyPak. I knew this was ridiculous ransomware, so I gave Hyphenet a call. They helped remove this bogus virus and restore my computer.Ronda S.
