It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

If you are infected you have neglected to install real time antivirus.

You neglected to install Windows Updates that would have prevented it.

You did not create system backups with Macrium Reflect to recover your system in case of problems.

Learn to NOT click on attachments in emails that you cannot trust.

Learn to take screenshots & add them to your posts. :thumbup2:


Learn to use Google Search.  :busy:

Make full system images to restore to if your computer goes bonkers.

Did you submit any samples of encrypted files and ransom notes to ID Ransomware for assistance with identification and confirmation? Uploading both encrypted files and ransom notes together provides a more positive match and helps to avoid false detections.
