My machine having WINDOWS XP SP2 OS has been infected by some kind of virus which has changed extension of all the files (like .doc, .xls, .jpg, .pdf) to .crypt. So now the files are all like .doc.crypt.

Next, if I rename this files and remove the extension, the file is not recovered. The file seems to have got encrypted in some way or it has corrupt data inside it.

I am not able to make out which virus has such a behaviour because I have tried anitivirus like NAV, AVG and some other but none of them can detect this problem and help me to recover the files.

Kindly send any information about this problem and how to recover infected files.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
