Can you attach a screenshot?

  • use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
  • make sure you do not exceed the maximum size of 1 MB

Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.

Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

I hope you have backups of anything important.

Some of these are scams or not very effective at encrypting files. Some of them are effective and the only option is to pay up or lose the data, although paying up will not necessarily result in recovering all the data or not getting further demands.

You may just have to take this as a hard lesson to be careful and take more effective precautions in future. It is also worth noting that such activity is illegal in almost all jurisdictions, and probably there are places where you can at least report the crime.

It is also possible to report sites that are scams etc. but of course the danger is that you fall victim again when you visit such a site.
