I'm new here and want to say thanks in advance for any help. I downloaded a zipped or rar file from some rapidshare site or something. When I unzipped it I ended up with every jpeg on my computer encrypted by some virus or whatever that was in the file I unzipped. Now I can't view any pictures that were on the computer when it happened. I can put new pictures in it and they are unaffected so it must have been a one time attack. My son's first birthday pictures. Christmas pictures and a bunch of others are all inaccessible. Dang it! I think it actually says "cripted" not encrypted. I hope someone can help me get them back. It's a windows XP computer - my old home desktop computer. Thanks for any help.
