3 files (the txt file named in the title, a .html title with the same name, and a shortcut to "download tor") showed up in pretty much every folder in my computer.
I did some research and learned that it was related to the CryptoLock virus that started about a year ago. Mine seems a little different though, there's no timer or anything, just those 3 files in every folder.
I tried to download "Omni Crypto Finder" to find an encrypted file to give to "https://www.decryptcryptolocker.com/" so they can email the decryption key. But I've had no luck finding an encrypted file.
Every program still works, but some with limited functionality: almost all previous word files are "corrupt", new ones don't allow header, iTunes shows a library but won't play anything, etc... Other programs are totally untouched.
Now, since I can't find any encrypted files, don't have any backups/shadow copies/restore points, and the problems persist, I'm confused. I'm not sure what to do.
I think that I may have a virus related, but different, to cryptolock. And the Omni-finder and the website won't be able to help because of it.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
