Uyari Ransomware Virus is Dangerous

Uyari is very threatening that it has been labeled as ransomware. It is discovered by many famous antivirus programs like AVG or others. However, many victims find that it is very hard to remove it. That’s because it can freeze up users’ antivirus and shut up the Firewall. After it attacks your PC, it quickly encrypts your files and demands you to pay a ransom to unlock the files.

If you ignore this fake message and try to continue using the computer, you will find that you cannot access to the files. In this case, many users may be fooled by it and pay the ransom so as to get the files decrypted. However, paying the ransom won’t make your files decrypted immediately. You will notice that the files still remain encrypted. You have to know that Uyari is a malware that is used to cheat users of money. If you don’t remove it, it won’t decrypt your files in any conditions. Therefore, when your files are encrypted by this ransomware, don’t be silly to pay the ransom, but take action to remove this virus from the PC completely and your files will be decrypted immediately after the removal.
