Has anyone ever successfully removed CryptoLocker from a Windows machine? Ive been able to remove the virus but not even close to unlocking the encryption. Please offer any help that you know of.

Thanks,

BTW ohcheap1...since this infection is so widespread, rather than have everyone start individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions or comments in the topic thread referred to by Animal.

Thanks
