Hello, and thank you in advance for your help. I have a laptop that seemed to have gotten infected with a nasty virus that took over the screen, and asked for payment from Spamhaus of all places. Having seen things like this before, I ran a slew of anti-virus that I've used to remove viruses before. I ran Malwarebytes, Super Anti-Spyware, and finally Combofix.
After I ran combofix (there were 2 deletions), I reboot the laptop and viola, no more taking over the screen. However, I have a directory in which I keep all my important work files for dropbox that it seems to have changed all the files into html files. Each file has ".html" slapped onto the end of it, and when you open it, directs you to another ransomwear page labeled Spamhaus. I've tried snipping off the .html, but the files don't open correctly.
If I lose these files I'm in big trouble. Does anyone have any suggestions?
