My documents, pictures and pdf files have been renamed to same file name with .crypt appended to each file.  I tried to download the ID Tool, then read where site was down.  Can someone please tell me where to start with trying to get my files back? No backup, looks like all restore points have been deleted. Operating system is Windows XP Professional.  If I can get the pictures, and documents off, I don't mind formatting and reinstalling windows.  Was planning on installing Windows 7 anyway, but really need the bookkeeping files..... Thanks!

You appear to be dealing with a variant of CryptInfinite Ransomware

Uniquekey@dr.com and crydhellsek@gmail.com encrypts your data and appends a .crypt, .pzdc, or .good extension to the end of each filename. cwall@dr.com is a newer variant which appends a .R16M01D05 extension to the end of each filename. These infections typically leave files (ransom notes) named Help_Decrypt.txt similar to CryptoWall.

There are ongoing discussions in these topics where you can ask questions and seek further assistance.From the above topics...possible decryptor solution is provided by Fabian Wosar in Post #34 and Post #5.Kaspersky Lab also has a utility called ScatterDecryptor utility that restores files only if the utility contains a certain Trojan-Ransom.BAT.Scatter modification's secret key. As of now, the utility contains keys for the files with the following extensions: .crypt, .pzdc, .good.

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 support 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.
