RectorDecryptor Review

Tina de Pierre
Decrypts data held random by Trojan-Ransom.Win32.Rector
A review of RectorDecryptor by Tina de Pierre

RectorDecryptor is a free release by Kaspersky (the antivirus author) which helps remove the nasty Trojan-Ransom.Win32.Rector worm and decrypts the files it has held for ransom.

If you're ever infected with this trojan, you will likely see a ransom screen asking you to pay up to have your files released. The trojan infects JPG, RAR, PDF and Word documents.

Running RectorDecryptor will scan your system for traces of the virus such as internal and external hard drives, USB mass storage devices and other media connected to your computer. Once the program has done its job, it will save a log file which you may access to view the damage Trojan-Ransom.Win32.Rector has caused.

This is one a few antivirus solutions which will take care of the trojan, but is a free standalone product if you wish to quickly clean your system.

RectorDecryptor is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from antivirus without restrictions. RectorDecryptor is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
