Hello all you bleeping bleepers! LOL Let me start by saying my name is Tina Scoggins. I am just a typical girl in a normal world and nothing crazy or exciting goes on around my town. I came across this bleeping website by doing a google search for this pop up I kept getting telling me that my files were not longer accessible and if I wanted to retrieve them, the only way to do so would be to follow their provided URL address, which of course, solicitied me to funds. I saw a post by one of the members on here and noticed that he suggested restoring your computer back to a restore point. Well, for geniuses like myself, I never create a restore point. 99.9 percent of the time, I can just reset my computer back to factory default and not lose anything valuable as I keep everything on external hard drives, a cloud, and FTP pages.
Moving forward, I know of another way to get rid of this, horrible, and what should be illegal and punishable by law (if only I could trace the butthole who did this to my computer, lol) ransomware.
But there was not an option to make a comment on the topic, and in order to contact the person who posted the topic I had to register, and well, here I am. So, now I am off to message the poster to ask him if he would please edit his post to include an alternative method, to some may find more much more difficult but I assure you, takes about 30 minutes to an hour depending on the depth of this malicious shenannigans!
