Hi I am Njfriendware,

just recently I had a virus on my computer. I think I removed the virus but each time I try to open a word, excel or pdf file it says my files are corrupt. Has anyone come across this problem before and fixed it. If I create a new file they open fine. I even tried opening the file on another computer and had the same problem. The exact message is there is problem with the contents. Now all of my documents are corrupt. any suggestions?

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

Reading that Guide will help you understand what CryptoLocker 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: Cryptolocker Hijack Program. 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, comments or requests for assistance in that topic discussion.

Thanks
