Hello I got infected with the Cryptodense virus 3 days ago and it has locked all my files unless i pay in bitcoins.  I ve read a bit online about this virus, not sure what can be done, kinda scared, i wanted to get some homework off the computer.  I did run Norton, Spyhunter, Malwarebytes and Stopzilla but it still exists.
 
 
i am running windows vista with service pack 2

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

Reading that Guide will help you understand what CryptoDefense and How_Decrypt 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: CryptoDefense - Newest cryptolocker variant. 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
