    Hi Liyatumb,

    I am danny and I’ll help you to fix this problem.

    Yes, it was a virus that you have downloaded and installed by mistake. Actually, it is an Ransomware particularly. What they do, they have changed all your document’s files extension and then they will ask money to decrypt the files to back stage.

    Solution:

    The initial step is, do restore your computer back to the good working date:

    Know how to do restore your computer back to earlier date

    Please reply back what happens after restore. We’ll give you further steps accordingly.

    Looking foraward to your reply.

    Thanks

    Here is the answer of your queries.

    1. If you restore your computer to the back date, all the settings of your computer will be restored. In the period of “restored date” to till now, all the apps you have installed, files, folders may be deleted. Before “restored date” the apps, files, folders will not be deleted.

    2. Ransomewares encrypted data can’t be restored becuase as they have encrypted the files with a particular algorithm, so only they can decrypt them. But only the system restore process will be revert back all them. Most probably the ransomeware will not allow you to run “system restore option”.

    May be they just have changed the files extension only instead of encrypt them.
    eg. “abc.pdf” to “abc.4175928478.ransomed@india.com”. Please try to revert back its extension to “abc.pdf” and then open that file and let us know what happens.

    3. Other drives data can be restored too because restore process will be undo all the actions that happened if the restore process will be done successfully.

    Now, please answer the following questions so that we can understand the current situation properly.

    1. What is your operating system?
    2. Is the ramsomeware giving you any message? or ask money to decrypt the files?
    3. Is your browser opening up?
    4. Are you able to download and then install any software from Internet? Try to download malwarebytes and the let us know.
    5. Is it allow you to run the installed softwares (.exe).

    When i open renaming application “abc.exe.4175928478.randsomed@india.com” to “abc.exe”, it say Do not run.

    As pretended, system restore did not worked.

    Anyway, Try one more trick to open file:

    Copy this abc.pdf file to another computer using a USB stick and then open it there at another computer. Please let us know the result of that.

    Disclaimer

    Before going to further removal steps we want to share some important information with you about the effect of further steps.

    We’ll try to remove this ransomware from your computer using some reputed software like Malwarebytes, HitmanPro.Alert, Zemana etc. (in free of charge). Hopefully, we will be successful. But if you talk about data, we don’t take any guarantee of your data. Most of the time the data cannot be decryptable without their encrypter. In this case, only one option remains. You will have to recover your data using data recovery software like Recuva, Stellar Data Recovery etc. So, please let us know, will you allow us to go through the further steps?
