I have been infected by Cryptolocker. Kaspersky did disinfect some but not all, my files now have the ext of .encrypted. Is there any help to decrypt my files ( I will not pay a ramsom) or are all the files lost.

Questions about Cryptolocker are best asked in the Cryptolocker support topic ... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/506924/cryptolocker-hijack-program/

 

You should also read through the Cryptolocker information page ... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/cryptolocker-ransomware-information

 

If this is a recent infection, it is more than likely that you could be infected with Torrent Locker which masquerades as Crptolocker ... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/torrentlocker-cryptolocker-ransomware-information

Hi there,

Ransomware that adds .encrypted file extension can be TorrentLocker or its variant Crypt0L0cker.

TorrentLocker information guide can be found here and a discussion thread can be found here.

Crypt0L0cker information guide is here and discussion thread is here.

It is best that you post any questions related to each ransomware in their respective topics.

To avoid confusion I have asked a Moderator to close this thread. Good luck.

I'm afraid I don't see what point you're trying to make.

 

fastboltjohn asked a question, and I supplied him with a set of links where I believed he would be most likely to find an answer to that question.

 

Any perception of reprimand that anyone may have read into my words, is more a product of their own imagination, than a reflection on the intent with which I wrote them.

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 the support topic referred to by Gary R.

BTW, any files that are encrypted with Crypt0L0cker/Torrent Locker will have the .encrypted extension appended to the end of the filename so also see this topic: Crypt0L0cker Ransomware Support & Discussion

Doing that will also ensure you receive proper assistance from our crypto malware experts since they may not see this thread. To avoid unnecessary confusion...this topic is closed.

Thanks
