I used malware bytes to remove it but it was still there


My file Extensions havent changed but the files that were affected for e.g a text file when i open it there some random characters instead of my file contents.

I could not use any decryptor since i could not identify the variant of this ransomware trend micro and identify ransomware were unsuccesful.

Edit : Unfortunately i hv deleted the ransomware notes file :(

Hi huntware99.
This GUI looks like PClock ransomware. You find the support topic here: PClock Ransomware Support and Help Topic

Best regards

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.
