NGSC Ransomware Removal Process (remove NGSCRansomware)

April 9, 2019

NGSC Ransomware is a newer variation of the Matrix Ransomware threat, which both are now known for actively encrypting files on an infected PC and then displaying a ransom note that makes demands to the victimized PC user to pay a fee to supposedly decrypt the files.

Paying the fee or ransom demanded by NGSC Ransomware may not grant the user with a usable decryption code or process. Instead of taking a gamble with NGSC Ransomware and trusting its ransom note, it is best to take matters face-on by first eliminating NGSC Ransomware from the infected PC by using an updated antimalware tool.

Once NGSC Ransomware is eliminated from the infected PC, one can then use a recent backup of the system to restore any files that NGSC Ransomware has left encrypted.
