Remove NERMER Ransomware virus

-

NERMER ransomware is a file-encrypting virus that locks your personal files and personal documents. NERMER ransomware requests bitcoin cryptocurrency to recover the encrypted files. The ransom charge varies from different versions of the NERMER ransomware.

NERMER ransomware encrypts files on your computer and adds a string of unique characters to the extension of the encrypted files. For example, image.jpg becomes image.jpg.NERMER

The decrypt text-file with instructions is placed on the Windows desktop: DECRYPT-FILES.txt

In most cases, it is not possible to recover the files encrypted by NERMER ransomware without the intervention of the Ransomware developers.

The only way to recover files infected by NERMER ransomware is to pay the ransomware developers. Sometimes it is possible to recover your files but this is only possible when the ransomware developers made a flaw in their encryption software, which unfortunately doesn’t occur frequently.

I do not recommend paying for the NERMER ransomware, instead, make sure you have a valid FULL back-up of Windows and restore it immediately.

Read more about how to restore Windows (microsoft.com) and how to protect your computer from ransomware (microsoft.com).

Having said that there are no tools at this moment to restore your encrypted personal files or documents that are encrypted by the NERMER ransomware. Although you might want to try to restore encrypted files. In more sophisticated ransomware the decryption key used to recover your files is server-side meaning the decryption key is only available from the ransomware developers. In order to remove the file that downloaded the ransomware files to your computer, you can remove the NERMER ransomware file with Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes instructions to remove NERMER ransomware files can be found in this instruction.

Try to decrypt files using online tools

Warning: any attempt to decrypt your NERMER ransomware encrypted files may cause permanent damage to your encrypted files.

You can try to restore your encrypted files using the ID Ransomware decrypt tools. In order, to proceed you need to upload one of the encrypted files and identify the ransomware that infected your computer and encrypted your files.

You can also use the Emsisoft ransomware decryption tools.
