Hi many thanks for the reply. I had been looking around for an old Atari st emulator so reckon that is where I picked up the Ransomware. It’s an old dell E6400 laptop that I bought second hand about 3 years ago so it’s not worth much, apart from a bit of light internet surfing it’s only used to dump the photos off our phones and for emails so I’ve never felt the need for anything newer. Like I said I have copied off all the files I need to keep so if it’s safe to copy them back afterwards I can clear everything except the operating system off of it if I need to). I’ve just gone in to ‘Control Panel’ (I should of mentioned this is Windows 7) and the previous owner had switched off windows backups. Should I use the recovery option to restore (the only restore point I have is 1st September but that should be far enough back.
