Windows 7, and the files now have the "micro" extensión. All my photos and documents .doc now they are encrypted. I have McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise 8.8 and Agnitum Firewall, but they didn't detecte the virus. Please help and thank you very much.

You are dealing with the newest variant of TeslaCrypt ransomware...TeslaCrypt 3.0 will have the .xxx, .ttt or .micro extension appended to the end of the filename as described in this news article. TeslaCrypt 3.0 will leave .html, .txt files (ransom notes) with names like recovery_file_[random].txt, recover_file_[random].txt, Howto_Restore_FILES.TXT and help_recover_instructions+[random].txt.

A repository of all current knowledge regarding TeslaCrypt, Alpha Crypt and newer variants is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this topic: TeslaCrypt and Alpha Crypt Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ.

Currently, there is no way of decrypting TeslaCrypt 3.0 .xxx, .ttt, or .micro variants since they use a different protection/key exchange algorithm, a different method of key storage and the key for them cannot be recovered. The .xxx, .ttt and .micro variants do not have a SharedSecret*PrivateKey so they are not supported by the current version of TeslaViewer. If infected with any of these extensions, backup all your encrypted files and wait for solution.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can ask questions and seek further assistance.You can also post comments in the related BC News article: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 that topic 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
