How to remove (uninstall) Yoyodiy

There are lots of harmful viruses in the Web, but ransomware is the worst. Redirects are nothing in compare with ransomware, and the harm that it might inflict. The most malicious of all is the ransomware that ciphers user's files, like Yoyodiy, which grants significant gain to its creators, and substantial losses to the people that let it in their laptops. In this article we’ll explain you, how you can remove Yoyodiy, and how you can probably get back the encoded files without paying a ransom.

Ransomware crawls into the machine with the help of malicious attachments in e-mail, and then immediately begins to cipher the files. If you failed to stop ransomware on the stage of penetration, then you will suffer losses. Almost all kinds of files, which may be found on usual person's workstation can be encrypted by Yoyodiy. Encryption takes from a few minutes to few hours. The process's speed may vary, it depends on the PC power and the number of information stored on it. Hackers demand the ransom to be paid in Bitcoins, to make the payment less trackable.

This virus uses the very complex algorithms of encryption that cannot be decrypted if the secret key is unknown. I'm trying to say that you only have single really secure method to get back your files: the load of backup. The lack of backups mean that you can say "bye" to your files, because you can't be sure that scammers that hacked your computer, won’t deceive you again after the payment. The data may be decrypted with help of other techniques, but they are not 100% efficient.

How to delete Yoyodiy Virus

When your system is infected by encrypting virus, the main objective is not the elimination of the ransomware itself, but the decryption of files. Eliminating the virus does not change the condition of files that are already corrupted, however, until ransomware dwells on your workstation, each downloaded file will be at hazard. It does not matter what recovery manner you will use, you still need to delete the virus. If you prefer the recovery in manual manner or the usage of backups, you must remove Yoyodiy as soon as possible, and if you prefer to pay the price - Yoyodiy must be uninstalled after the total file recovery. The deletion can be made with help of special anti-viral software, or in manual mode. Speed and safety of both methods are the same, but the requirements for user experience and skill are extremely different. Hand deletion needs some experience of who produces it. Experience is required in order to avoid errors and to neutralize the consequences of mistake, if it does happen. Uninstall with help of AV-tool doesn't require any experience from the operator. Operator just has to load the program, install it and launch a scan. Below this part, you will find the complete instructions for eliminating of Yoyodiy.

How to restore files encrypted by Yoyodiy

The problem of Yoyodiy has just one decent solution - to backup the system. You should use these manners if there's no another choice, but be ready that they may fail. The fact that the backups are kept on separate media, makes them virtually inaccessible to Yoyodiy. Other techniques depend on the OS functionality, and their efficiency may be lowered by the virus itself and the lack of skill. So, except the backups, and the paying of fee, there are two complementary ways to decrypt your data. You can try the shadow copy service, or a special program to restore the files. If you want to learn more about these methods - please read our special article about data recovery.
