Hello,
Can someone can kindly help me to recover my files encrypted by the cryptolocker virus?
I suppose already remove the virus but I want to recover the files.

Hi and :welcome:


Unfortunately there isn't any way to decrypt the files. Further reading comes here about TeslaCrypt (it's the one that was here):

I also don't see an active infection here any more.

Hi,

no traces visible in the logfiles, that I can deduce the way of infection. These are mostly deliveried be exploits and spam e-mail as far as I am concerned...


However I still see other things here we can take care about, so let's run these two tools.



JRTbythisisu.png Fix with Junkware Removal Tool

Please download JRT by Thisisu and save the file to your desktop.
Temporary disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware protection - instructions here.
  • Right-click on JRTbythisisu.png icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Follow the prompts and let this process run uninterrupted.
  • This scan can take a while, depending on your System specs.
  • Upon completion, a log (JRT.txt) will open on your desktop.
Please include the contents of that file in your reply.
Do not forget to re-enable your previously switched off protection software!
Please also manually reboot your machine after this procedure.


adwcleaner_new.png Fix with AdwCleaner

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save the file to your desktop.
  • Right-click on adwcleaner_new.png icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • The program will begin to update the database (if internet connection is operational). Please wait a little bit.
  • Follow the prompts and click Scan.
  • When finished, please click Clean.
  • Upon completion, click Report. A log (AdwCleaner[S*].txt) will open.
Please include the contents of that file in your reply.

No 100% good way, unfortunately. My recommendations may be found below.
 

Recommended reading:


icon_exclaim.gif MUST READ - security tips: Computer Security - a short guide to staying safer online.
icon_exclaim.gif MUST READ - general maintenance: What to do if your Computer is running slowly?



Recommended additional software:


icon_arrow.gif TFC - to clean unneeded temporary files.
icon_arrow.gif Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - to scan your system from time to time in search for malware.
icon_arrow.gif Malwarebytes' Anti-Exploit - to prevent plenty of mostly exploited vulnerabilities.
icon_arrow.gif McShield - to prevent infections spread by removable media.
icon_arrow.gif CryptoPrevent - to help secure yourself from very severe CryptoLocker infection.
icon_arrow.gif Unchecky - to prevent from installing additional foistware, implemented in legitimate installations.


Since you have decided to wipe out the hard drive, then you shouldn't experience other issues. Always good to have a backup though.
