If you already have anti-malware software
installed on your computer, download the latest malware definitions and perform a full scan of your computer. However, if you do not have malware removal software, download one and install it. I recommend Malwarebytes
as it has the most current ransomware updates. Other great tools include AVG
, and Microsoft Security Essentials
. Whichever tool you decide to use, make sure you download the most current malware definitions. Once you have the application installed with the latest definitions, perform a full computer scan.
