    I have a very important relation about cryptolockers!
    It's About uninstalling cryptolockers
    Open your task manager, enter the process tab and terminate the crypto's tree.
    Open the Run menu and go to the msconfig program.
    Enter the services tab and disable the crypto.
    Enter the Startup tab and disable the crypto unit.
    Enter the Document and settings folder located in your windows drive.
    Crypto folder in the folder all users to find and remove it with all its system files.
    That was so simple.
    ha ha ha ha
    they will not destroy us!!

    If you're talking about BitLocker, I guess so.

    New.... as in brand new, Ransomware in the wild.

    CryptoWall 2.0
    It kicks CryptoLocker’s @$$.

    Makes encrypted copies of all your files and deletes the originals. Then erases all shadow copies so previous versions will not work and then apparently deletes restore points.
    It also infects mapped network drives as well as other shares and even you dropbox storage if you have it mapped.

    So basically, if you don’t have backups, you’re properly screwed.
