Your question seems to be saying that you want to remove the Ransomware itself. I don't doubt this can be done somehow, although it would mean you could no longer buy your way out of the encryption if you really feel you have to.

If, as I suspect, you mean that you want to remove the "encryption" too, then that's when it all becomes far more difficult - assuming it is even possible.

Prevention:
I am using CryptoPrevent but this will only stop this new one if set to a very high level. This is almost certain to stop quite normal things from working too, so it is far from satisfactory. Let's hope the author can eventually find a better way around these new ones.

The best bet is to disconnect your backup drive when not in use, or at least disable it in Device Manager. That will stop the backup also being encrypted, so after removing the Ransomware itself you could restore your files. OK if, like me, you backup manually as you go. Not so easy to manage if you have some automatic backup feature.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
