Hi, I was infected by the howdecrypt  malaware over the weekend. I erased it thanks to advice from this forum and was having some success in recovering files using shadow explorer, It would only work on my B drive and not my C. but I had a lot stored on it so was fairly happy considring, However I shut down the comuter and when I rebboted this AM it would only show a blank screen . I am rumming windows 7, Any thoughts Guys

A repository of all current knowledge regarding CryptorBit and HowDecrypt is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this tutorial: CryptorBit and HowDecrypt Information Guide and FAQ

Reading that Guide will help you understand what CryptorBit and HowDecrypt Ransomware does and provide information for how to deal with it and possibly recover your data.

There is also a lengthy ongoing discussion in this topic: HowDecrypt or CryptorBit Encrypting Ransomware - $500 USD Ransom Topic. 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 questions or comments in that topic discussion.

Thanks
