    How can I delete Petya Ransomware from my PC?

    Good evening. I have a problem with my PC. I think I have got a virus on my Laptop. If I start my Laptop, everything goes ok, then I receive a strange notification on my desktop: you became a victim of the Petya ransomware. What is it ransomware? Is it a virus or a joke programm? On the site: Petya ransomware: how to decrypt and remove virus ? Nabz Software they write, that it is a downloaded-virus, but I did not do any downloads at all. How can it get to my laptop? What tool can delete this? Can I do it myself? Can you write me please step by step delete process? Thanks

If you have not made full image backups before this happened, and if some or most of your data files are ransom-encrypted -- it will take specialists found on different boards on The 'Net to give you the straight story, the truth of just what is ahead for you and your computer.
