got infected with the threat finder virus, i have removed the virus, but now my files are still corrupt, i have download the kaspersky tool rectordecrypter, for some reason when i use this tool, im able to view my files, but whenever i choose the option to decrypt them, it finds nothing.
Just wondering what another tool is i can use to recover my files, mainly pictures are most important.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic: Threat Finder Ransomware Support and Discussion

From the above topic...

At this time we are still waiting for confirmation as to whether the files are actually being encrypted and with what algorithm. The good news, though, is that this infection does not delete your Shadow Volume Copies so it is possible to restore your files using the Windows Previous Versions feature or a tool like Shadow Explorer. For detailed instructions on how to restore your data files from Shadow Volume Copies, please see this section of the CryptoWall guide:

How to restore files encrypted by CryptoWall using Shadow Volume Copies

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. To avoid unnecessary confusion...this topic is closed.
