I have a Windows 7 Acer that is 4 years old. Never had a problem before but today Cryptolocker attacked my machine and I can't seem to get my antivirus to turn on. I did use my malwarebytes anti malware but I need your help badly. It says it has encrypted my files and this is true in some cases but not all. Please help soon.

Hello and sorry for your problems -

Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), the site owner of BleepingComputer, has also created this tutorial:
CryptoLocker Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ

There is 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 or comments in that thread.
