How to fix Modern Setup Host (SetupHost.exe) High CPU and Disk...

Also known as SetupHost.exe, Modern Setup Host is an important Windows component that is responsible for the proper installation of updates. Whenever users upgrade their system, Modern Setup Host launches in the background mode to finish the update. The component can work in active mode for up to 4 hours depending on the size of installing updates. It is normal to see Modern Setup Host allocated with most resources in Task Manager whilst updating your system. Unfortunately, during its vital activity, some users experience severe drops in system performance due to excessively high resource usage. CPU, Disk, or even Memory can be overloaded to 100% resulting in freezes and system crashes eventually. This, therefore, prevents users from installing updates correctly. Sometimes it may be hard to detect the issue unless you know the most common origins of it. As a rule, the main reasons that cause SetupHost.exe to soar up in resource consumption are low hard drive capacity, the presence of malware, corruption, and incompatibility issues. To make sure the problem is solved, follow our tutorial down below.

How to remove Hhqa Ransomware and decrypt .hhqa files

Hhqa Ransomware is the subtype of STOP Ransomware (or DJVU Ransomware) and has all the characteristics of this family of viruses. Malware blocks access to the data on the victim's computers by encrypting it with the AES encryption algorithm. STOP Ransomware is one of the longest living ransomware. First infections were registered in December 2017. Hhqa Ransomware with such suffix is yet another generation of it and appends .hhqa extensions to encrypted files. Following the encryption, the malware creates a ransom note file: _readme.txt on the desktop and in the folders with encoded files. In this file, hackers provide information about decryption and contact details, such as e-mails:, and Telegram account: @datarestore. The good news is: there is a possibility for successful file decryption. However, several conditions should match. If the affected PC was not connected to the internet, or a malicious server, that generates keys was not accessible at the moment of infection there is a tool called STOP Djvu Decryptor, which can decrypt files, encrypted by hhqa Ransomware. We provide a download link and instructions on how to use it below in the article. There are also some alternative ways to recover your photos, documents, videos, etc. Using file-recovery software and certain default Windows system functions, such as restore points, the shadow copies, previous versions of files, can be helpful.

How to remove

0 is a social engineering trick that pervades your desktop with ads, forces redirects to untrustworthy websites, and gathers personal data. In fact, pages of this type are usually visited due to clicking on suspicious ads or buttons that overlay third-parties resources. However, sometimes, they can be set for a constant appearance at the browser startup because of Potentially Unwanted Programs that might have attacked your system. Remember that such pages force users into allowing push notifications to send malicious banners right to your desktop. This can, therefore, lead to potential security threats because your data may be tracked and sent to the server of cybercriminals. Applications that generate traffic by displaying advertisements are categorized as adware and have to be removed from your PC.

How to remove Moqs Ransomware and decrypt .moqs files

Moqs Ransomware is devastating encryption virus from the series of STOP Ransomware (DJVU Ransomware). It has got its name from .moqs extension, that ransomware adds to the end of encrypted files. From a technical point of view, the virus remains the same as previous versions. Malware uses identical ransom note, called _readme.txt. From this note, we can learn, that malefactors offer to decrypt 1 file for free and can provide a "discount" if the user pays fast (within the first 72 hours). Our experience and reports from multiple victims show, that those are false promises. Hackers rarely reply back after receiving the payment. However, do not despair - there are cases when your files can be decrypted. If during the encryption process there was some internet connection loss or malfunction of the hacker's servers, Moqs Ransomware uses an offline key, that can be retrieved by a special tool called STOP Djvu Decryptor. Please, download it below, and read instructions on how to use it carefully. If STOP Djvu Decryptor is unable to help you, you can try some alternative methods to restore your photos, documents, videos, etc. There are standard Windows system functions, such as restore points, the shadow copies, previous versions of files, can be useful, although, malicious algorithms often prevent such opportunities.

How to remove Haron Ransomware and decrypt .chaddad files

Haron is one of many ransomware infections that target encryption of personal data to demand paying the so-called ransom. Such malware makes sure most of the data stored on your device is locked out from regular access. Put differently, users affected by ransomware are no longer permitted to access the files. To learn if they have been encrypted, it is enough to look at their appearance. Haron adds the .chaddad extension to each of the files and forces the reset of icons as well. For example, a file named 1.pdf will be changed to 1.pdf.chaddad and drop its icon to blank. After this part of infection gets to a close, victims receive two notes (RESTORE_FILES_INFO.txt and RESTORE_FILES_INFO.hta) with decryption instructions. These instructions are meant to inform users about encryption. In addition to that, they claim cybercriminals to be the only figures able to recover your data. For this, users are asked to purchase unique decryption software held by extortionists themselves. Victims have to access a link via the Tor browser to complete the required payment. Sometimes frauds forget to put the contact or payment links, which makes recovery via cybercriminals automatically impossible.
