    My doctor prescribed me an anti-fungal cream and so far it's clearing up nicely.

    There's a bunch of websites on Google that say locky file remover but they look just as shady imo

    At this point, there is only one method of removing the Locky virus and having files decrypted: paying the ransom. Furthermore, Beaumont believes there’s little likelihood a tool will be developed that can decrypt files Locky has scrambled.

    If OP is not going to take this seriously, I don't know how helpful we can be.

    That is some seriously evil shit. Wonder if this sort of thing happens if there's no bitcoin to do transactions without leaving as much of a trail as something like Paypal.

    i have backups, I just cant find any info on how to remove the problem BEFORE I restore the backup files. How can I be sure the backup files aren't infected? I ran malewarebytes on the infected machine and it caught nothing.

    Here's 3 steps that should help:

    1. Send the mobile virus into the malware, it will generate the monitor by transcoding its PPPoE port.
    2. Reroute the back-end transmitter into the program, it will index the circuit by indexing its PPPoE network.
    3. Disable the unicode application into the firewall, it will transcode the interface by networking its AAC address.

    Just remember, you can't shut down the protocol without synthesizing the haptic TPS interface.
