Power Speedup 2018

Power Speedup 2018

New PC optimization tools are released every year; however, some of them do not differ much from older applications. Power Speedup 2018 is the perfect example of this. It has been developed on the same template as some other PC optimization tools our specialists analyzed last year.  It looks like perfectly decent software, but what immediately causes concern about its trustworthiness is the message “The site ahead may contain harmful programs” that is displayed to users trying to open its official website https://www.speedywinutils.com.

IT.Books Ransomware

IT.Books Ransomware

IT.Books Ransomware encrypts almost all files found on the computer, which is why some of the software might crash once the system gets infected, and data like images might become impossible to open.

It would not cost you anything either. However, before attaching any removable devices or connecting to cloud storage where backup copies could be kept, it would be advisable to erase the malicious application first to be on the safe side. If you choose to follow our advice we encourage you to use the removal instructions available at the end of this report. On the other hand, if the process appears to be too complicated for you to complete on your own, you could get a legitimate antimalware tool and let it eliminate IT.Books Ransomware for you.

Fanatics Search has an official installer, but because this installer does not present the add-on in an attractive manner, it is most likely that third-party installers are used for the distribution.

Rektware Ransomware

Rektware Ransomware

Rektware Ransomware is a file-encrypting malicious threat that turns the targeted victim’s files into useless data. Afterward, the malware drops a ransom note and shows the same text provided on a popup window that should be displayed on the computer’s screen. The message does not say a lot beside telling the victim to send a letter to a given email address. It may also contain the following phrase: (FreeDecryptAllYourFiles). It might look as if the malicious application’s creators promise to decipher victim’s data free of charge, but we highly doubt it considering such infections are usually created solely for money extortion. Perhaps, the hackers think they will be able to convince their victims to pay after all.
