Thank you for the list of extensions, that's very helpful. I have read on blog after blog about the software to protect against the cryptolocker / cryptowall however I have yet to find anything regarding restoring files or resolving the issue short of wiping the machine, and being better prepared next time. Is there anything out there in the community that can help when someone finds themselves in the position of already having the locker other than pay the ransom or loose your data?

If you are affected by ransomware and do not plan on paying the ransom, the best bet it to immediately image the drive before doing anything else. Then in the future if there is a way to decrypt the files you have everything you may need to do so.

Unfortunately, decryption of Crypt0L0cker (TorrentLocker)...is impossible since there is no way to retrieve the private key that can be used to decrypt your files without paying the ransom. The only methods you have of restoring your files is from backup, file recovery tools, or from Shadow Volume Copies as explained in the FAQ: How to restore files encrypted by TorrentLocker...but there is no guarantee that will work.
...I have a laptop here beeing affected by crypt0l0cker is there a tool like the tesla decrypt tool for crypto?...Unfortunately the hard drive is although damaged so I can't retrive files with .encrypted extension.

TeslaCrypt 3.0 encrypts with the .micro extension. Refer to the news article for more information. There is no solution at this time.
There are a few scams going around right now with promises of decryption, but I can assure you, there is no way to decrypt files from Crypt0L0cker (TorrentLocker) or TeslaCrypt 3.0 at this time. The only place you can pay is the malware developer, which only funds their criminal activities.
If I have helped you and you wish to support my ransomware fighting, you may support me here.

I doubt it. As noted by Demonslay335, there is no way of decrypting TeslaCrypt 3.0 variants at this time. Please read BloodDolly's reply in Post #1451.
...in the meanwhile during my answer here another client just called me with another infection this time .micro I will get hands on it Monday, I have mailed with an Internet site that says that they are able to encrypt files with cryptlocker virus, they asked for money to this for sure, could it be possible??
