Well crytowall got me, almost all my files. 

can't even open outlook. 

having to use my yahoo account to make contact and just barely remembered that password.

1. What is the best recovery tool to try to use?

2. On a USB drive, when crytowall deletes the file does it stay on the flash drive or go somewhere else?

3. Lots of pictures lost.

4. Was using Mcafee AV.


Mess, mess, mess, all day today...

A repository of all current knowledge regarding CryptoWall & CryptoWall 2.0 is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this tutorial: CryptoWall and DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ

Reading that Guide will help you understand what CryptoWall & CryptoWall 2.0 does and provide information for how to deal with it and possibly decrypt/recover your files. At this time there is no fix tool for CryptoWall.

CryptoWall 2.0 uses its own TOR gateways...see Updated CryptoWall 2.0 ransomware released that makes it harder to recover files.

There is also 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.
