Recently my PC was infected by a ransomware virus displaying a warning.txt file as posted below. I have since, performed a system restore, installed norton 360, updated the virus definitions, performed a partial scan that removed a couple of viruses and have tried several decrypting tools with no success. My music, word and MS office files still remains as .crypt file and I cannot access them. I have seen a previous post about this and i'm wondering if anyone can help me with decrypting my files. Any help is much appreciated.
