Coupon Search

While everyone wants to save money when they shop, you should always be careful about the methods to employ to achieve that.

Righ Ransomware

Righ Ransomware

Righ Ransomware is a tremendously clandestine infection that bets on people to be careless with spam emails and bundled downloaders. If you interact with spam email attachments and unreliable downloaders carelessly, you could let the infection in before you know what is going on. The launcher of this malware can be concealed in a clever manner, and you could be tricked into executing it yourself. Once the file is planted, it can do some serious damage. The main task for this malware is to encrypt your personal files, and it can do that successfully using a unique encryption key. A matching decryption key should exist, but you are unlikely to get your hands on it, which is why this kind of malware is so dangerous. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has analyzed the malicious infection, and our recommendation is that you delete it as soon as possible. Shouldn’t you figure out what to do about the encrypted files first? Well, we hope that you will be able to restore them after you remove Righ Ransomware. Read more »

Remk Ransomware

Remk Ransomware

Remk Ransomware leaves an extension called .remk on the files that it encrypts, which is where its title comes from. The malware encrypts files with a secure encryption algorithm. Meaning, files affected by it cannot be restored unless you have a unique decryption key and a decryptor. While the malware’s developers seem to have such tools, they are willing to share them only with victims who pay ransom. The worst part is that even if you pay the sum they ask and on time, you cannot still be certain that the hackers will hold on to their end of the deal. Therefore, dealing with the malicious application’s creators could make matters even worse if you end up losing your money as well. To learn more about the malware, we recommend reading the rest of this article. Also, since our specialists advise deleting Remk Ransomware, we encourage you to check our removal instructions placed at the end of this page. Read more »

Eight Ransomware

Eight Ransomware

Eight Ransomware adds the “.id[{your unique ID}].[use_harrd@protonmail.com].eight” extensions to the files it corrupts. Can you see this extension added? If you can, we suggest taking immediate action. First of all, remove the malicious threat. The damage might be done already, but you want to destroy the infection that has caused it. Second, you want to replace the corrupted files with copies that, hopefully, you have stored online or on external drives. If you do not have copies, you might not be able to restore personal files at all. Finally, you have to get down to the root of the problem, which is Windows security. Clearly, something went wrong for the malicious infection to slither in successfully. Whether your security software has failed, or you did not have any security systems implemented at all, you want to make sure that your system and the remaining files can stay safe in the future. If you want to learn more about how to delete Eight Ransomware, how to replace files, and how to secure Windows, keep reading. Read more »

Lokd Ransomware

Lokd Ransomware

Such tools could be your only way to restore your files, but we do not advise purchasing them if you fear getting scammed and losing your money for nothing. If you want to know more about the malware, we encourage you to read the rest of this article. Also, we can offer our removal instructions that show how to erase Lokd Ransomware manually.

My Email Checker Tab

My Email Checker Tab

My Email Checker Tab is a tool that was designed by Eightpoint Technologies Ltd. This is the first sign that identifies a potential threat. Unfortunately, this company keeps producing more and more extensions that seem to offer legitimate services, but in reality, are completely useless and, perhaps, even intrusive and unreliable. A few other programs that are linked to the same company include Email Access Here, Your Search Tool, Find A Flight Pro, Breaking News Plus, and Watch Movies Live. Needless to say, it makes no sense for the same company to create several apps for email access/management, and that is another sign that, perhaps, these apps are not meant to be that useful. Of course, whether or not they are useful for you only you can decide. In either case, we recommend removing My Email Checker Tab and all other apps that were created by the same company. If you need no explanation as to why you should delete these extensions, you can go straight to the last section. If you need more information, continue reading. Read more »

Email Access Here

Electronic mailing systems make our lives easier, but in some cases, we look for tools that can help us manage them better.

Anti-Apyware-101.com researchers have analyzed the suspicious extension, and it was concluded that it works as a PUP, or potentially unwanted program. Can PUPs be trusted?
