    I fixed this recently on a friend's computer, it was one of the most difficult things to deal with.

    After I finally stopped the malware from loading at startup and removed it completely from the system, it had replaced most of the personal files with encrypted versions - including the entire photo collection.

    Luckily we had a recent backup otherwise all the photos would have been lost, as the most recent version of this 'ransomware' apparently changes files to a version that is impossible to unencrypt without paying the hackers - and even if you pay them, often they don't provide the codes necessary for unencryption.

    Hackers using his type of malware (ransomware), in particular, IMHO should be tarred and feathered, set down in a prison warehouse filled with infected computers and made to repair every damn one of them.
