I'm running on windows xp Sp3


It appears I was infected by cryptowall. I have cleaned through malwarebytes.


Tried to recover to a date in the last few weeks but the files are still encrypted.


What are my options? I have tried using undelete software to restore the files too..

There is a lengthy ongoing discussion in this topic: CryptoWall - new variant of CryptoDefense.

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. Nathan will assist you there.
