A virus renamed all my files (Word, jpeg etc) with the prefex "locked" and encrypted them. I think I have got rid of the virus but I cannot open any of the files - they are just a jumble now.

Apparently there are a few decrypters available which can sort everything - one at Dr Web for example -but these rely on having the original file.

I don't really understand this, as if I had the original file surey there wouldn't be a problem!



Sorry if I'm being very thick but is there no way I can get these files back if I don't have copies?

Hello, not your fault.. This is a Ransomware infection.. DO NOT run a Temp file or Registry cleaner. Or use amy decyptor until we cab determine the proper one.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
