"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If Ransomware: Restore from backup?
(where a backup is kept off-line).

Another option a versioned filesystem that keeps sufficient older versions of files.

Emotet is a banking trojan that obtains financial information by injecting computer code into the networking stack of the infected computer, allowing sensitive data to be stolen via transmission. It can still data such as your address contacts, it can cause dinial of service on other computers and can download other banking trojans that can cause other damage.  IT is not ransomware where it threatens to delete or encrypt your data unless you send money. Although it is still a vary dangerous type of malware that can still your banking information.....
