If you want to know all about ZinoCrypt Ransomware and how to protect your computer from it, then read on.


ZinoCrypt is a ransomware Trojan that encrypts the victim’s files and demands a ransom be paid to decrypt them. It is important to know how to protect yourself from this type of malware, as it can be extremely difficult to remove once it has infected your computer.


Attackers usually spread this virus through email attachments or fake downloads, so it is important to be careful when opening emails or downloading files from the internet. If you have ZinoCrypt on your computer, then you will likely see that your files have been renamed with the .zc extension and you will also find a message demanding a ransom in order to decrypt your files. This message will usually give you a deadline to pay the ransom, and if you do not pay it within that time frame, then your files will be permanently encrypted.

The ransom amount ZinoCrypt asks for can range from $200-$1000 in Bitcoin. But, the price will go up the longer you wait to pay the ransom.


The best way to protect yourself is to have a good anti-malware program installed on your computer. This will help to remove any ZinoCrypt Ransomware that you may have on your system and will also protect you from future infections. You should also make sure to keep your operating system and software up to date, as ransomware can take advantage of vulnerabilities in these programs.


If you do end up with ZinoCrypt Ransomware on your computer, then you should not pay the ransom. There is no guarantee that you will get your files back even if you do pay, and you could be putting yourself at risk of identity theft by doing so. Instead, you should focus on removing ZinoCrypt Ransomware from your system.

You can find more information about how to do this in the ZinoCrypt Ransomware removal guide below. This guide will show you how to remove malware from your computer using a variety of methods.


The ZinoCrypt Ransomware Removal Guide below outlines a few different methods that can be used to remove this virus from your system. Follow the instructions carefully and make sure to create a backup of your data before proceeding.


Method 1: Use an anti-malware program


The first method you can use to remove this ransomware is to use an anti-malware program. There are many programs available, but we recommend using Malwarebytes or HitmanPro. You can download these programs from their respective websites.


Once you have downloaded and installed one of these programs, you should run a scan of your system to remove any ZinoCrypt Ransomware that may be present.


Method 2: Use System Restore


If you have a recent backup of your system, then you can use System Restore to roll back your computer to a previous state. This will remove any ZinoCrypt Ransomware that may be present on your system, but it will also remove any other programs or files that were added since the last restore point.


To use System Restore, first, open the Start menu and type “System Restore” into the search box. Then, click on the “Create a restore point” option and follow the prompts.

Once you have created a restore point, you can then select it and click “Restore” to revert your system to that state.


Method 3: Use a ZinoCrypt Ransomware removal tool


There are also some ZinoCrypt Ransomware removal tools available that can be used to remove this malware from your system. We recommend using the Zemana AntiMalware Tool or the Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool. You can download these programs from their respective websites.


Once you have downloaded and installed one of these programs, you should run a scan of your system to remove any ZinoCrypt Ransomware that may be present.


Method 4: Manually remove ZinoCrypt


If you are experienced with computers, then you can try to manually remove the malware from your system. This is a risky process, however, and we do not recommend it for most users.


If you choose to proceed, then you will need to identify the ZinoCrypt Ransomware files on your system and delete them. You should also remove any registry entries that are associated with ZinoCrypt Ransomware. Once you have done this, you can then use a program like CCleaner to remove any leftover files or registry entries.


However, as we mentioned before, this is a risky process and should only be attempted by experienced users. If you do not know what you are doing, then you could end up deleting important system files or damaging your computer.


We recommend that you use one of the methods outlined above instead.


After you have removed the ransomware, you can then focus on restoring your data from a backup.

If you do not have a backup, then you may be able to use a data recovery program to recover some of your files. SalvageData data recovery software is one option that you can use.


Public decryption tool is not available at the time of writing this article. Even if you find one, we do not recommend using it as it may be a scam. There are many reports of ZinoCrypt Ransomware variants that are posed as decryptors but instead infect the computer with other malware. So, before you download one, make sure that it is from a reliable source.

Contact a data recovery service

If you cannot remove ZinoCrypt or decrypt your files, then your only option may be to contact a data recovery service.
