It occurred overnight while my laptop was left on. There was a saved directory of all the corrupt files with this image set as my wallpaper (all attached). There were 4-5 files titled "Your files are locked !!" that got deleted before I could open them, and there was a file called "CryptoLocker.exe" left on the desktop.

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.
