To protect the computer from Mal/EncPk-HH, I advice you to stop downloading pirated softwares from the internet. This is how many users fall prey to the attacks of the infections. The attackers embed the infections along with such pirated softwares and when the users download such softwares, they actually download the entire infection along with into the system.

Hello there, keep all the softwares in the system updated, since the infections are developed as to execute in a particular environment. So, by keeping the entire system updated, the environment of the entire system changes and thus, the same method can be used to protect the computer from Mal/EncPk-HH and such other infections. For this purpose, keep the Automatic Updates in your system always on.

The attackers generally send bulk mails to many users by embedding infections along with the emails. So, you will have to beware while opening the email attachments from the unknown users to protect the computer from Mal/EncPk-HH. I advice you to open only those mails that are send by the users whom you know. This will keep your system safe from infections, that enter from the web.
