Hi

 

A friend said his son's files and folder are mssing from computer so I looked at drive and searched to no avail.  I did however find a dunch of .JPGE files.  Cleaned with Superantispyware and Malwaere bytes and found the regular malware.  Used the tfc and removed 1gig of tempfiles and system runs well and everything looks normal.  Is it possible that the .JPGE extension files are encrypted?  I do not know what was done before I got conmputer.  So The JPGE files was my only concern.

 

Anyone see these before as I can not find reference on the web for them.

 

Thanks

That's odd. If you can open those pictures, they aren't encrypted, but if you can't, sadly they are encrypted and without backup you are not able to restore them back.
