I just used Id ransomware to identify my particular flavor. And unfortunately it told me I have an "(updated) PClock" and to sit tight and hope for a solution.


I managed to remove the virus and I still have a ransom note and lots of encrypted files. I would like to humbly ask for any help I can get to decrypt my files please?


I'm running windows 7


Thank you for any help you can give,

Unfortunately, there is no longer any way to provide decryption for newer PClock variants.

Fabian Wosar, Authorized Emsisoft Representative and BC Security Developer explains why in Post #987.

Just as a heads up: We released a blog post about the newest variants and why we are unable to help.

Note: ID Ransomware reports the infection as "Possible decryptable" only because the older variants are but it cannot tell the difference between old and new variants through the encrypted files or ransom note.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can post comments, ask questions and seek further assistance. Other victims have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.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.
