Want to Survive Ransomware? Here’s How to Protect Your PC

Ransomware is a huge problem these days for users of Windows computers. See https://duckduckgo.com/?q=ransomware&t=brave&ia=web to find hundreds of articles about ransomware. Once your files have been encrypted (or even deleted in some cases), you cannot get them back unless you pay a ransom, usually thousands of dollars.

The sad part of all this is that ransomware problems are easily prevented, but only if you make preparations in advance. If you wait until after your computer has been infected by ransomeware, usually there is no solution other than paying the ransom.

An article by Dave Johnson in the How-To Geek web site tells what Windows users need to do right now. You can find the article at: https://tinyurl.com/privacy-190822.
