Ntk Ransomware behaves a bit different than other cyber threats of this type since it does not encrypt any files on the infected PC. Yet it still messes up your system and demands you to pay a ransom to bring things back to normal. It is enough to classify this dangerous application as ransomware. Ntk Ransomware has a sophisticated working mechanism, but it is still possible to revert the damage done by it. We will cover all the details you need to know in this article.
First of all, let’s talk about what this malware does instead of typical encryption of your files. The symptoms of Ntk Ransomware include degraded PC performance, system crashes, blocking access to the PC. In addition to that, it also connects to the Web without user’s permission, installs upon infiltration without any permissions, and cannot be deleted via Control Panel.
The arrival of Ntk Ransomware is announced via a screen-lock that is opened after the stealth installation. You will see a window with a Guy Fawkes mask that contains additional information about the blocker and how it can be fixed. There is no need to read it or try to contact the criminals. Just focus on the Ntk Ransomware removal as it can be done easily.
According to our analysis and reports we receive, this locker infiltrates your computer via spam emails from the unknown sender. It comes in the form of suspicious attachment (it can be a text file, video, picture and so on). If you receive an email from the unknown source with a strange message and suspicious attachment, don’t rush to open it. Do not download and run executable files or applications from your inbox. There is a high chance of catching a virus, worm, Trojan, etc. by simply clicking infectious links.
If you have already become a victim of Ntk Ransomware, you have several ways to eliminate the threat. You can do it by manually deleting the infection (the locking screen fades after the reboot). The second option is to copy-paste the following code in the bottom box of the lock-screen: 15s4e56dsjdhfy87. This trick might not work at all, but if it does, you will see another screen with instructions how to unblock your PC. However, you will have to delete Ntk Ransomware from your computer by yourself once and for all. We recommend doing it with the help of any trusted anti-malware program: Plumbytes Anti-Malware, Reimage, or SpyHunter, for example.
