About 90% of all the jpg files in my computer
turned into *.exe files. I am very sure that
this is a virus. Days later the initial
infection happened, some of my doc files
turned into *scr files. Later, even Mozilla
Firefox now seems to be infected, as it acts
very differently now.
MY main concern is the recovery of the jpg
and doc files. They are very important to me.
I am an aspiring graphic designer and
photographer. It is hard to imagine how I
would start again from scratch without those
I have tried renaming the files, but the
dialog box keeps on telling that the file "is
currently being used by other programs". I
have tried to search for solutions over the
net and it seems that I can't find any.
I will really really appreciate if I would be
able to learn how to recover the infected
files, and save them safely.
Upon that, I am very willing to format my PC
to prevent all of these.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
