Hello! My computer- running windows 7- got the worst virus ever! It turned thousands of my files (docs, txt, jpg, zip) in every disc a have, not just in the main C into a cryptographic mess. I can't open them and they have the extension .ctb2
I did a search online and I learned that this is cryptolocker or cryptowall or I don't know what to call it. They are asking for money to give you a code to open them. In my case no message was shown on my desktop to tell me where to go. It just encrypted my files. I went to recovery and did a system restore to previous date but the files are still locked. I know that there is no solution right now for ctb2 but I want to make sure that my computer is clean. I m so scared to use it or plug an external drive to check my backups. I am currently in safe mode with networking. Can you please help me? I want to ask you if I can run these tools you are suggesting in safe mode. Thank you and I hope there will be a solution soon for this virus that is like the embola of computers.
