ComputerDestroyer Ransomware

What is ComputerDestroyer Ransomware?

ComputerDestroyer Ransomware is a malicious infection that is meant to convince you that your personal files were encrypted. Well, the good news is that they were not; unless there is a real file-encryptor inside your operating system, and this fake encryptor is taking attention away from it. Of course, that is unlikely to be the case. This malicious threat is a screen-locker of sorts, and if it manages to execute inside your Windows operating system, it should first log you off and then display a full-screen window that cannot be closed normally. You should, however, be able to reboot your system to Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking and remove ComputerDestroyer Ransomware successfully. Hopefully, you have not been tricked into contacting the attacker behind this malware, but even if you have, and if your files were “decrypted,” you must delete this infection as soon as possible.

How does ComputerDestroyer Ransomware work?

We have been dealing with screen-lockers for years now. ComputerDestroyer Ransomware is just one of them, along with What is Rabbit Ransomware, or Ransoc Screenlocker, or Screen Locker. Nowadays, some of the most aggressive and damaging threats are file-encrypting ransomware, which is why the screen-lockers we see are usually trying to convince victims that their files were encrypted. As you now know, ComputerDestroyer Ransomware does not encrypt files. It also does not destroy computers, despite its name, which has derived from the email address that the attacker wants you to send a message to. It is unclear how exactly this malware spreads, but we assume that spam emails and bundled downloaders are involved. These are the most popular methods for malware distribution these days. Once executed, the screen-locker logs you off and displays a message in black background that says this: “All your files has been encrypted by corona virus. No one can recover your files without my decryption code.”

The message displays an OK button as well, and if you click it, you can log into your computer as per normal, but then ComputerDestroyer Ransomware launches a full-screen window. This window displays another message in blue background: “you are infected of corona virus.” Due to this, some victims might recognize this malware and try to remove it as CoronaVirus Ransomware, but that is an entirely different threat. The message presented by ComputerDestroyer Ransomware is very clear – you have to send an email to or Obviously, we do not recommend doing that because cybercriminals would ask money from you (i.e., the ransom), and if you paid it, you would not get the password that, allegedly, could decrypt your files. Your files are NOT encrypted at all, and so contacting the attackers is a risk that you should NOT take. If you have sent an email already, prepare yourself for an onslaught of intimidating messages and also spam emails that could conceal the launchers of new threats, as well as virtual scams.

How to remove ComputerDestroyer Ransomware

You need to delete ComputerDestroyer Ransomware files if you want to be able to operate your computer normally. Well, how are you supposed to do that when your computer is locked? You can overcome this hurdle by booting your system to Safe Mode. Of course, once you do that, you still need to identify and remove malicious files, and if you are inexperienced, you might be unable to do that yourself. This is why we recommend booting the system to Safe Mode with Networking and then downloading a legitimate anti-malware program. Once it is installed, it can safely inspect your system and then automatically remove ComputerDestroyer Ransomware components. Even better, it can continue protecting you, your system, and your personal files thereafter. Unfortunately, new malicious infections keep emerging from the depths of the Internet, and so you need to do everything to protect yourself. While implementing legitimate anti-malware software is very helpful and important, you should also back up all personal files. Move copies to a legitimate online drive or an external drive, and you will have copies just in case a real file-encryptor invades your system and truly encrypts your files.
