Do you know what TBlocker Ransomware is?
TBlocker Ransomware can make your day turn into a nightmare as it can encrypt your important files and render them useless. Our researchers say that though this malware infection seems like a serious and dangerous threat, there is actually a way out for you, i.e., to restore your encrypted files. We have the code to unlock our screen and a key to decrypt your files if you find a working DES decryptor. Of course, we cannot encourage you to find such a tool unless you are an advanced user. It is never safe to pay any money to cyber criminals because they may not keep their promise and you would just waste your money, not to mention the fact that you would literally support cybercrime at the same time. We strongly recommend that you remove TBlocker Ransomware from your computer immediately and try to recover your files using a free decryptor or your backup stored on a removable drive.
Our researchers say that this malware infection can slither onto your system in a couple of ways. First, it is likely that you receive a spam mail that seems to be regarding an important matter like wrong credit card details given while online booking, unsettled invoice, a parcel that could not be delivered to you, and so on. A lot of users know that spam filters are not 100% certain. In other words, it is worth checking the spam folder from time to time, or even every day, because the spam filter's policy can be too strict and legitimate mails can end up there, too. However, finding this spam could be very misleading and you may actually decide to read it as well as to open its attachment. You should know what this attachment can be disguised as a document or a picture file. When you click to view it, you will simply run this malicious program on your system. Thus, this is also the "point of no return" in a sense because deleting TBlocker Ransomware will not save your files from encryption.
Second, it is possible that you end up on a shady torrent site while trying to download a free program, but instead of a reliable program, you drop this ransomware threat or a full bundle of malware infections. Third, you may also land on a malicious site operated by these cyber criminals, which uses Exploit Kits to infect you. It is vital for you to know that these kits can only harm you if your browsers and drivers are not updated properly. Finally, if you have a remote desktop program on your system and it is not configured securely enough, these crooks can break into your computer and take control. No matter how you may have infected your system, though, you need to remove TBlocker Ransomware as soon as possible.
It is quite rare that a new ransomware uses the DES (Data Encryption Standard) algorithm, but this one definitely does so. Strangely enough, it simply appends a "_" sign after the file extensions, which have been encrypted. Most ransomware programs add their own extension usually, or they change the whole name with a string code. This malware infection also disables certain system processes like Task Manager and explorer.exe as well. Since it also locks your screen with its ransom note window, you may actually feel threatened and may believe what these criminals claim in their note.
This note says that your files will be made public if you do not pay after 24 hours. You have to pay 250 dollars in Bitcoins to get your computer unlocked and your files decrypted. However, there is no guarantee that you will really get your files recovered. Fortunately, we have a solution for you. So let us tell you how we would remove TBlocker Ransomware from the system.
Since your computer is locked, it is best to restart it in Safe Mode. Once your Windows has started up, you can delete the registry key and the related files easily. Please follow our guide below this article if you want to do this manually. Hopefully, you see now why we always emphasize the need for a reliable malware removal tool like SpyHunter to protect your PC automatically against all kinds of malicious threats.

In non-techie terms:
TBlocker Ransomware is a dangerous malware threat that can encrypt your files once this vicious program manages to sneak onto your system. There are a couple of ways for it to do so. For example, it may come as an attachment in a spam e-mail, by your clicking on a bad downloader pop-up, via RDP attack, or through clicking on unsafe third-party content on shady websites like torrent and freeware pages. This ransomware blocks your main system processes, which makes it more difficult to eliminate it but not impossible. This infection blocks your screen too with its ransom note, which demands $250 dollars in Bitcoins for the decryption key. Since its own decryptor does not even work, you may lose your money, too, if you choose to pay. We recommend that you remove TBlocker Ransomware right away. Protecting your PC effectively is possible if you install a trustworthy anti-malware program.
