I wrote this article to help you remove Ramnit Trojan. This Ramnit Trojan removal guide works for all Windows versions.
Ramnit, also known as Virus.Ramnit .I, belongs to the family of Trojan Horses. As you may have heard, Trojans, together with ransomware pieces, are considered the most dreaded cyber infections. If you have dealt with a Trojan before you know exactly why it is crucial to remove it immediately. Unfortunately, unlike ransomware threats, Trojans work in complete silence and you may not even realize your machine is infected for weeks. However, the fact that you remain oblivious doesn’t mean that the pest isn’t wrecking your machine in silence. On the contrary. This is exactly what it does. The longer the parasites stays hidden, the better for the hackers. That’s why you have to pay attention to your computer and if you notice anything out of the ordinary, take measures. For instance, Trojans take a lot of CPU memory which incredibly slows down your machine. There are other signs as well which we will explain in a minute. The important thing to know is that Ramnit was only developed to serve crooks` malicious purposes and it will destroy your PC in the process. It has to go now!
The Trojan gets activated the minute it sneaks in your system. Once it, the problems start pouring to continue to pile up until you remove the intruder for good. For starters, Ramnit messes with your system registry. It also makes modifications to your default PC settings behind your back. It doesn’t need your permission. It acts as it sees fit. As a result, some of your important system files get altered or damaged and you may not be able to use some of your programs and applications. Of course, this is not all. The Trojan also attacks your browsers by adding a pesky extension to all of them, thus injecting them with sponsored unreliable links. Needless to say, these links cannot be trusted. They could easily lead you to pages full of more infection or they can even conceal malware themselves. Aside from the links, you are also bombarded with shady ads that are just as hazardous. Having this Trojan on board means that you are always one click away from malware. Your machine is already in a bad shape.
This single Trojan causes it to underperform. Imagine what could happen if you accidentally invite more pests on board. Not to mention that Trojans also serves as backdoors to other infections. Mostly, to ransomware. The only thing worse that having one the of the most dangerous parasite types is having them both on your computer. You know what ransomware does, don’t you? Are you willing to sit quietly and wait for such a pest to get it? As we said you already have a malware piece to worry about. Also, your machine won`t be able to handle more. Because of the Trojan, its speed slows down to a crawl. It crashes frequently. Your browsers freeze. Even your Internet connection worsens. Your overall online experience is ruined by the Trojan. And like this is not enough, your privacy is in jeopardy as well. As the crooks are the ones in charge now, they have access to your private details.
Ramnit spies on you and everything it finds it sends to the crooks behind it. We are talking IPs, usernames, passwords, accounts, email addresses, browser-related data, etc. Consider your private life no longer private. And last, but definitely not least, the Trojan may try stealing your money by making you purchase some fake anti-virus product or present you a fake update. Trust nothing. It is all a scam for profit. Don’t click on and definitely don’t by anything Ramnit suggests as you will only worsen your already pretty bad situation. What you need to do is remove the pest now. Use our removal guide below and delete the Trojan for good.
Once you do that, make sure to protect yourself better in the future. Do you know how Ramnit got in this time? Crooks use techniques as they are aware you would never give such a parasite your permission to enter. One of the most popular and effective methods for Trojans distribution is spam emails messages. Hackers often attach a pest to a seemingly legitimate email and you do the rest by blindly opening everything that lands in your mail inbox. Don’t do that. Delete any message from an unknown sender even if it looks safe and even helpful. Such emails often deliver infections and if you are not distracted you would be able to prevent an intruder from entering. Also, stay away from suspicious pages/sites/torrents/ads and be extra careful when installing freeware/shareware bundles. What all pests need the most is your negligence. Don’t provide it.
