Steps to Delete TQV Ransomware Permanently

TQV Ransomware is a file encrypting malware. If it infects any Windows based PC then user would notice several of their personal files and folders have become inaccessible. It appends .TVQ extension in every file that it encrypts. For example, if a file named as file.jpg gets encrypted, its name will change to “file.jpg.TVQ”. When you try to access, it delivers a ransom note on the screen named as “@@README.TXT”. This ransom note is also stored in every folder that contains the locked file. This ransom note creates panic because it asks victims to pay certain money as ransom in order to get the decryption key. The original decryption key is stored in the personal server of cyber-criminals at a remote location. The problem is that the developer of TQV Ransomware doesn’t provide the original decryption key even after the money is paid.

The ransom note of TQV Ransomware doesn’t have much information. It only commands to pay ransom and doesn’t contain any technical information such as cryptography type used for encrypting the files. So, till now it is not known whether it uses symmetric or asymmetric cryptography cipher. Every victim will receive a unique decryption key however it uses public encryption key to infect mass computers and files. The amount of ransom note is also not fixed. It varies from $500 to $1500 probably based on the number of files it encrypts. The money is asked to be paid in Bitcoin Cryptocurrency. As mentioned earlier, there is no guarantee that you will get the original decryption key after you pay the ransom. Most of the developers of ransomware totally ignore the victims once they receive the money. You will not get any positive result even after the money is paid. So, it is better that you use some alternate ways. It will not be very difficult to recover the encrypted files if you have created backup files in some external drives. You must also check “Shadow Volume Copies” because most of the ransomware doesn’t delete it. If any kind of backup is not available they you can try using data recovery tool.
