Hello guys. I'm new on this site and this thing.
Allow me to apologize first if there is anything wrong with my post.
So, my notebook was infected with something you guys called Ransomware.
This change almost all existing data in my notebook directory.
When it is done it will display a ransom note called _55_HOWDO_text.html that provides instructions on how to pay and retrieve your decryption password.
And it change my file into *.odin file.
Please Helpppp :( :( :(
Thank You.

This is a Locky variant, and is not currently decryptable without paying the ransom. You should continue your posts in the Locky topic.That topic will have additional information about a solution if and when one becomes available.

We are drowning in information - and starving for wisdom.

Rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the above support topic discussion...it includes experiences by experts, a variety of IT consultants, end users and company reps who have been affected by ransomware infections. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
