Ransomware is a type of malicious software program that is basically designed to restrict your access or to encrypt the data files on your Windows PC, and afterward it asks you to pay money to get access to your data files. As the name stands for, it holds a computer system and doesn’t allow a user to use the system until the ransom is paid.

Some of the possible situations your Windows PC might be infected by the Ransomware:

·         Clicking unsafe, suspicious, or fake websites.

·         Opening emails and email attachments that have been sent from unknown sources.

·         Opening malicious or bad links in emails, Facebook, Twitter, and in messenger chats, like Skype.

These are three conditions that you need to stay away from if you don’t want to get affected from the dangerous Ransomware program. And if you are looking for some better and more effective technical assistance on the procedure, then dial a technician on his toll-free Windows 10 support number and get connected to the technicians immediately.
