Kaspersky RakhniDecryptor Description
Kaspersky RakhniDecryptor is a lightweight and portable piece of software designed to decrypt files encrypted with Trojan-Ransom.Win32.Rakhni. It features a small and intuitive set of options that can be easily altered by users, whether they have previous experience with virus removal apps or not.
Since installation is not required, you can drop the executable file in any part of the hard disk and immediately launch it. Another possibility is to save Kaspersky RakhniDecryptor to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any PC with minimum effort and no previous installers.
An important aspect worth taking into account is that the Windows registry and Start menu do not get updated with new entries, and no extra files are created on the disk, thus leaving it clean after removal.
Straightforward interface and options
The GUI is represented by a small window with a plain and simple structure, where you can immediately start the scanning procedure with the click of a button. By default, the app looks into the entire hard drives as well as removable drives. Users may handpick the exact locations to scan (even include network drives) and ask the app to delete the encrypted files immediately after decryption. Settings can be restored to default.
On scan initialization, it is necessary to point out the path to one of the encrypted files, as Kaspersky RakhniDecryptor will take care of the rest. Program activity may be examined in a report window.
Evaluation and conclusion
There were no kind of issues throughout our evaluation, since Kaspersky RakhniDecryptor did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. It has a good response time and carries out scan jobs quickly while running on low CPU and RAM. Thanks to its intuitive interface and options, Kaspersky RakhniDecryptor can be handled by all types of users.
