If your files recently got epor extensions, that means your PC is infected with encryption virus called Epor Ransomware (part of STOP Ransomware or Djvu Ransomware family, called so because first versions of virus of this type appended .djvu extension). This is a very wide-spread and actively distributed malware. Ransomware initially used the AES-256 encryption algorithm, and there was no way for decryption. However, if during the encryption process infected PC was out of the internet, or connection with a remote server of hackers was interrupted your files can be decrypted using methods provided below. STOP Ransomware has a ransom note called _readme.txt. In this text file malefactors give contact information and details on how to make a payment. The virus copies it on the desktop and in the folders with encrypted files. Hackers provide following contacts, e-mails: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Template Finder Now is a dubious program that changes your homepage providing access to popular templates. Unfortunately, such changes can dictate unwanted capabilities such as data-tracking and generation of ads. This is exactly what browser hijackers tend to do - altering browser settings to promote fake search engines (search.templatefindernowtab.com) that show ostensibly unique results. In fact, Template Finder Now abuses legitimate Yahoo.com to redirect queries of users, which means it has nothing special to offer. On top of that, a group of malware researchers established that Template Finder Now works along with another Potentially Unwanted Program called Encrypted Search, which penetrates systems using sneaky methods. For obvious reasons, unwanted software like template Finder Now has to be removed from your PC to prevent the tracking and exploit of personal data (passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, etc.).
Being developed by the Phobos Ransomware family, Acuff puts up a strong lock on victims' data by running encryption with cryptographic algorithms. This, therefore, restricts any attempts to recover data completely. After the attack has been committed, you may see your files change to something like this
1.mp4.id[C279F237-2275].[firstname.lastname@example.org].Acuff, which is a testament that your files have been infected. Acuff Ransomware uses the victim's ID, cybercriminals' email, and .Acuff extension to highlight the encrypted data. In order to help users restore their data, extortionists offer to walk your way through the note listing decryption instructions. The information can be found in two files called info.hta and info.txt that are created after encryption. The first step on the path of decryption is to contact cyber criminals via an e-mail address attaching your personally-generated ID (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org). After that, swindlers will respond back with details on how to buy decryption software. Before doing so, you are also offered to send up to 5 files (less than 4MB and non-archived) for free decryption. Despite this activity may seem trustworthy, we recommend you against meeting any requirements set by developers of malware. It would be a risk to pay a large amount of money for the sake of file recovery.

PPS Video Player is an application allowing users to play videos of different formats. Whilst such features can be useful for some people, the program has significant flaws that may endanger your safety. As it turned out, PPS Video Player has adware capabilities to generate advertisements and banners across the browser. It does so using a so-called "virtual layer" that enables advertisements to be shown on any page. A range of gained clicks on the advertised content brings profit to its developers. This is the main purpose of PPS Video Player, but not the improvement of users' experience. In addition to this, an important note is that such programs can gather personal data (passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, etc.) and sell it to third-party organizations for additional profit.
