I have machine with Win 7. In that infected by some kind of virus which has changed extension of all the files (like .doc, .xls, .jpg, .pdf) to .crypt. So now the files are all like .doc.crypt.

Next, if I rename this files and remove the extension, the file is not recovered. The file seems to have got encrypted in some way or it has corrupt data inside it and i couldn't open the Window task manager also.

Kindly send any information about this problem and how to recover infected files

Hello. Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a decryptor tool for every type of ransomware.

The first thing to do is ensure the infection has been neutralized.

Please follow our pre-posting process outlined here:

NEW INSTRUCTIONS - Read This Before Posting For Malware Removal Help - Tech Support Forum

After running through all the steps, please post the requested logs in the Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help forum, not here.

If you have trouble with one of the steps, simply move on to the next one, and make note of it in your reply.

Please note that the Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help forum is extremely busy, and it may take a while to receive a reply.

As specific malware issues are not addressed in this area, I will close this thread now.
