:welcome: to Bleeping Computer.
More information is needed to determine specifically what infection you are dealing with since there are many variants of crypto malware (file encrypting ransomware).

Are there any obvious file extensions appended to or with your encrypted data files?

Did you find any ransom notes? These infections are created to alert victims that their data has been encrypted and demand a ransom payment. Check your documents folder for an image the malware typically uses for the background note. Check the C:\ProgramData (or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data) for a randomly named .html, .txt, .png, .bmp, .url file. Most ransomware will also drop a ransom note in every directory/affected folder where data has been encrypted.

You can submit samples of encrypted files and ransom notes to ID Ransomware for assistance with identification and confirmation. This is a service that helps identify what ransomware may have encrypted your files and then attempts to direct you to an appropriate support topic where you can seek further assistance. Uploading both encrypted files and ransom notes together provides a more positive match and helps to avoid false detections. If ID Ransomware cannot identify the infection, you can post the case SHA1 it gives you in your next reply for Demonslay335 to manually inspect the files.

HAHAHA

damm

 

 This ransomware has no known way of decrypting data at this time.

It is recommended to backup your encrypted files, and hope for a solution in the future.

Unfortunately, there is no known way at this time to decrypt files encrypted by Dharma variants without paying the ransom. Our crypto malware experts who analyze these infections suspect another cyber criminal forked the code and generated their own keys which were not part of the leaked master decryption keys for the original CrySiS variants.

Since the infection has been identified, 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 below support topic discussion.When or if a solution is found, that information will be provided in the above support topic and you will receive notification if subscribed to it.

To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.

Thanks
