Hi I opened a Voicemail e-mail to ceheck it out and got crypto lock malware.  I have backed 80% of files and would never think of paying extorsion even at the cost of files lost.

 

So how do I actually remove it completely?  Anyone know yet.  Funny thing is that I had crypto prevent on both computers I own.

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, comments or requests for assistance in that topic discussion.

Thanks
