How to remove Ccwq Ransomware and decrypt .ccwq files

Ccwq Ransomware is one of the newest versions developed by the STOP (Djvu) family. This ransomware targets various types of personal data (e.g. images, videos, documents, etc.) using online keys randomly generated for each victim. Once they are applied and data becomes encrypted, users are no longer able to access and interact with it. During the encryption process, all the files get assigned with .ccwq extension. This means that files will change their name and reset their icons. For example, a file like 1.pdf will be changed to 1.pdf.ccwq and lose its initial icon at the end of encryption. Then, just like other recent versions of the STOP (Djvu) family, Ccwq creates a text note called _readme.txt that contains decryption instructions. No matter which one was dropped on your PC, all of them display the same information.

How to fix Mail App error code 0x8000000b

0x8000000b is a widespread error that some users may face while trying to add a new third-party account (Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, etc.) to the native Mail app on Windows. This application is built-in and can be extremely useful for managing emails in different accounts without leaving the desktop. The reason why such an error occurs is problems with syncing - that the Mail app is unable to establish a connection with an external e-mail server. This can happen due to some third-party or even native firewall blocking connection requests, disabled POP and (IMAP) settings, or even a bug in the Mail app itself. As a result, a message saying "Something went wrong. We're sorry, but we weren't able to do that." stretches over the screen and stops users from adding the account. In rarer cases, the same error may also take place when trying to send an e-mail message from one of the already-added accounts. Whatever it is, we have a list of solutions that might be able to help. Follow our guide below to try each one of them and deal with the problem eventually!

How to remove

0 is a suspicious website designed to deliver ad-based content. It does so by attracting users into allowing the push-notifications window that appears in the top left of the screen. Usually, such websites are landing pages that stimulate people by showing foolish messages. For example, may say that you should enable notifications to pass Captcha, watch a video, download a file, or something like this. No matter whether they are fake or not, the adware page will complement these actions with the delivery of banners and ads. Users will see them pop up in the bottom right corner on their desktops. Clicking on them can be a dangerous thing since they are able to redirect clicks to fishing or scam pages. This, therefore, can result in multiple privacy issues. The way you visited depends on the individual case. If you see it appear even after rebooting your browser, this means your system is dealing with an adware infection. Deleting a program that targets may be an arduous task. This is why we have created this guide to perform complete removal instructions.

How to fix ERR_HTTP2_PROTOCOL_ERROR in Google Chrome

ERR_HTTP2_PROTOCOL_ERROR is quite a popular error that may occur in any browser including Chrome, Edge, Opera, Firefox, and so forth - mostly on Windows 10/11 systems. HTTP2 is a new protocol that replaced its HTTP precursor with a faster time response by consolidating files into one packet and transmitting them to the server. One of the reasons why ERR_HTTP2_PROTOCOL_ERROR occurs is because the website you are trying to visit does not support the HTTP/2 protocol - often due to cheap hosting or that the administrator of the website has not enabled this protocol on the server. This reason would be relevant if you are unable to visit one specific webpage. Otherwise, if that is the entire browsing you are facing problems with, then it could be related to more general causes like outdated browser versions, incorrect date & time settings, conflicting browser add-ons, overstuffed cache, or even experimental features leading to connection conflicts. Below, we have compiled a guide with solutions that will potentially resolve the problem and get your browser back to working again. Note that the instructions below are mainly focused on resolving the problem in Google Chrome, however, you can also use them for performing similar actions in other browsers too.
