Just got hijacked by ransomware on Chrome, Win7 Pro (64 bit).


I was unable to close all chrome processes in task manager. More kept opening and there were a lot.

So that suggestion in the tutorial doesn't work with all versions of the ransomware.


What did work was rebooting and deleting the chrome files that logically contained the link to the malware.


I know the mods are very careful about giving correct advice, so I won't say which files.  And hope updated instructions turn up in a revision of this topic.
