I have re-introduced the computer into the network, it continued the decryption, it has decrypted the files.
it did have an error on a file that was either in place, or out of place, but it continued.
Then it appeared to be restarting the scan again, which may be the behavior when there is any error.
Just to be safe, I disconnected it from the network, and the program stopped.
It stated to make sure important files were working, and that if there were any errors to move them to the desktop
and to click retry until the errors were gone, or press cancel and the software will be deleted from the computer.
I clicked cancel, and of course, I got a dialogue box that said " I'll be back " Great, eh?
Anyways, i'm in the process of reconfiguring the backup.....
Seems like we made it through this one.... Not fun.....
Theoretically I have the Decryptor program which was downloaded from the website via the URL which was
provided on the splash page, and the public/private keys, and the your_private_key.bin file so I should be
able to return to decrypting later if needed.
I have a clone of the workstation post infection, pre payment activation, post payment activation.....
Continued full virus scans of the computer turned up some additional files, which I am not certain were there
in the early part of the infection, so I think it is possible additional objects were downloaded or spawned over
