As my screen name aptly describes, I was HITBYCRYPTOLOCKER and having no file back ups, felt my best option was to pay the ransom. Remarkably some 6 days after paying with a MoneyPak, my files were decrypted. Now that I have them back I FIRST need help understanding if this maliscious software is still embedded in my PC?, I also need advise knowing the order in which I should proceed in removing the danger, protecting my PC and yes, building a routine for backing up my files in the future. Right now I am afraid to open any files and though in great need, I am hesitant to open my Quick Books program to avoid possible future corruption. Do I need to worry about this and do I have to clean and learn how to oust Kryptolocker as a safety precaution as I suspect?
