I'm now a happy box.com user. 


Hey Straffin,

 

Sorry to hear that it wasn't a solution for your problem but it absolutely was a solution for mine. Why unmark it as a solution if your a "happy" box user. Marking your post as a solution doesn't help anyone but up to you.

Hey 310EI,

 

I saw your ransomware tweet last month which led me to your forum post, it was a lifesaver. I sent your post to our local tech who was able to use your link suggestions which helped him to tackle removing the ransomware. After that he used No More Ransomware's website instructions to decrypt our data, we never heard of their website before.

 

After he backed up all our decrypted data he did a clean install of windows 7 to erase any traces of the ransomware. He wanted me to mention that he appreciated you taking his phone call last month, he said your suggestion to remove the infected hard drives and scan them externally was a time saver plus effective way to get rid of the ransomware. Also, he implemented the off-site backup service and anti-ransomware software that you recommended for our computers.

 

Your contributions saved us a lot of money not only for the ransom they demanded but for the data we could have lost. We just had to tell you we're grateful for your post and other useful suggestions.

 

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
