I did a stupid thing this morning and clicked on a link in an email without checking it thoroughly. As a result all my files have been encrypted by a virus calling itself CryptoLocker . I've read that there are now a number of copycat viruses and I don't know how to check which one I have. The files show no extensions other than the word 'encrypted'. I really hope there is some way of retrieving the files especially from a USB which was attached at the time and contains a huge amount of my daughters work.
Thanks for your help,
