    How to protect your PC from the latest ransomware called not-petya

    Ok, so this is just to help anyone on a PC who is afraid of the ransomware virus called "not-petya". It’s a pretty nasty ransomware and I found this batch file on the internet which will vaccinate your machine against it.
     
    It works by creating three empty files that can’t be overwritten with the same name that the virus uses. Then if the virus tries to get on your system, it can't save to the hard disk, so it simply won’t work.
