I am running a Win XP SP3. We had ransomware (crptyolocker) about 6 months ago? and I deleted all the files that were infected. And ran a series of different scans to "clean" the pc. Then I was directed to install CryptoPrevent, which I did.
Now, today I am held ransome AGAIN. I do not know if it is the same person or not. Thankfully there are no files on my computer. This computer is solely used for internet use and there may be a few games on it. Thats all.
At this point I want to reinstall win xp (also am having other issues, maybe the cryptolocker affected windows files?) and do a clean install however i do not have a disk BUT i do still have the win xp product key that is on the side of the tower.
Oh- Before this "attack" I have ran Avira, Malwarebytes, Spybot,Ccleaner, JRt and adwcleaner. Malwarebytes would popup a warning that a specific outgoing IP address was blocked (i had NO browsers open) which was strange.
So if anyone can help please advise me on what to do,,,,ill be right here
