Hi,   Alex.    :welcome:

My name is Maurice. I will be helping and guiding you, going forward on this case.

Thank you for the report files.

I can help you remove the ransom notes.  I cannot help you to actually "fix" any of the encrypted user files.

There is no known decrypter for this particular ransomware.

I can help you to check this current system to see that there is no current infection.

I can help you to get a list of all files that have the .KVAG extension.


Ransomwares typically self-delete once they have done their dirty deed of encrypting user files , storing the ransom notes & only then showing the notice of a ransom.

NOTE:  They also turn OFF the Windows System Restore service   & also typically delete all prior restore points & also turn off  Volume shadow copy service.

The only good way to recover damaged files is by using a old Backup of the system  ( saved from before the infection).

Backup is always your best friend.


Please find 1 or 2  .kvag  files  and upload them for analysis to ID-Ransomware

ID-Ransomware is a free community site dedicated to information about different ransomwares.

Go to  https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com/index.

Look on the right side.  Click browse   & point it to one of the .KVAG files  & upload one at a time.

Upload another file too, just for another opinion.

Good afternoon.

I have not heard back from you.   Is there anything that you need at this point?   If so, then do let me know.


If you need to have a list of all the .kvag files, let me know.  I can provide you a script to do that.

If you need to delete the ransom notes, there is a small app to do that named Ransomnote cleaner http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/ransomnotecleaner/   .


If this pc does not now have Malwarebytes for Windows Premium, then at least get the beta anti-ransomware.

version 1.1.242 of Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware from this link.


For sure, make sure that the Windows System Restore service is ON.



Also be very sure that Volume Shadow Copy service is ON  ( enabled)

Run MSCONFIG   (  press Windows-key +R key   and type in MSCONFIG)

scroll thru and be sure that Volume Shadow Copy has a check-mark  on the right side.


Press and hold the Windows-flag-key on keyboard and tap the *R* key to get the RUN menu option.

type in


and press Enter key. 

Scroll down the list. Look for
"Volume Shadow Copy"  is listed there, with a Startup type of Manual.


Backup is your best friend.  Make regular backups of your system on offline media.  It is best if you would keep 3 generations, with one of those kept outside of your regular location   { perhaps on a cloud location, such as Onedrive  or even Google drive ) .


Let me know if you need something else.
