Good morning and hello to everyone. Cryptowall 2.0 and a family member has brought me to you guys. The info found helped understand the problem and the only solution after removing the evil was to rebuild and reinstall from scratch to insure a clean system. The lesson learned is that redundant backup is a good thing. unfortunately it is a practice that I did not do. rest assured it will now be a standard operating procedure for me and the little group that I support. Thanks again guys. Hope I never need you again but something tells me that's not going to happen.

Sorry to hear about the cryptowall run in. These ransomware viruses are getting more and more popular thanks to cryptolocker which racked in a few million dollars in ~6 months. They are here to stay but with proper backups they will just become another annoyance like all the rest of the junk out there.

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
