Trix Ransomware Removal Guide

Do you know what Trix Ransomware is?

Trix Ransomware is an infection that is meant to encrypt every single personal file you have on your Windows operating system. The point is to paralyze you and make you take certain actions. According to our researchers, this infection is part of the GoGoogle Ransomware family, and it is likely that we will see more infections from this family emerge in the near future. Of course, there are tons of other ransomware families that you need to watch out for, which is why Windows security is more important than ever before. It is also becoming increasingly important to create backup copies of all personal files because if they are stored outside the infected computer, victims can replace files with copies. We hope that you have this option if you need to remove Trix Ransomware from your operating system as well.

According to our malware experts, the malicious Trix Ransomware could be distributed in a number of ways. Like many other threats of its kind – including Ooss Ransomware, HorseLeader Ransomware, and Revon Ransomware – it is most likely to use spam emails to spread. The launcher of the threat could be hidden in a seemingly harmless file attachment or link, and so victims could be tricked into executing malware themselves. The threat could also be spread via unreliable file-sharing sites, torrent sites, and so on. Once inside the system, the victim does not have much time to delete Trix Ransomware, and because this threat is likely to stay hidden, it is unlikely that anyone would be quick enough to discover and remove this malware. If it is not eliminated immediately, it encrypts all personal files. To mark them, the infection adds the “_ID_{number}_[].trix” extension to their original names.

Once files are encrypted, Trix Ransomware should deliver a ransom note with demands to pay a ransom. This is why this threat is classified as ransomware. According to researchers, the ransom note should be delivered using a file named “FileRecovery.txt,” and the message inside should instruct victims to send emails to and The first email address, as you can see, is included in the extension that Trix Ransomware adds to the corrupted files. So, what would happen if you contacted the attackers behind this malware? Undoubtedly, they would ask you to pay a ransom in return for a decryption password, a tool, or something else that, allegedly, would make it possible for you to restore your personal files. Most likely, you would be wasting money by paying the ransom, which is why we do not recommend taking this step. We also do not recommend contacting the attackers in the first place because that could open the floodgates to new scam emails and malware.Trix Ransomware Removal GuideTrix Ransomware screenshot

According to our researchers, Trix Ransomware deletes itself after it is done encrypting your files, and if that is the case, you have one less problem to worry about. Of course, you cannot be 100% sure that your system is malware-free until you inspect it thoroughly. Therefore, we strongly advise implementing a trusted malware scanner to inspect your operating system before you move on. Another important thing to figure out is Windows security. Clearly, you need help guarding your operating system against malware attacks, and we advise implementing anti-malware software. Once you do all of this, we hope that you can replace the files corrupted by Trix Ransomware by safely stored backup copies.

Remove Trix Ransomware

In non-techie terms:

Trix Ransomware uses tricks to slither into your Windows operating system, and if it does that successfully, it can encrypt all of your personal files. When a file is encrypted, it cannot be read, and a special decryptor is needed. That is what the attackers behind the threat are likely to suggest to you in return for money. Contacting the attackers, paying the ransom, and fulling other demands is dangerous, and you are unlikely to get your files decrypted regardless of what you do. Therefore, we suggest focusing on the removal of Trix Ransomware. This malware should delete itself after encryption, but you want to make sure of it. You also want to secure your operating system. We advise implementing trusted anti-malware software that could automatically delete malware components and, at the same time, protect you against new threats as well.
