uKash virus locked my computer files, not my computer

May 3, 2012 at 15:09:00
Specs: Windows 7, P4- 2.8 quad core 2gb
Damn that thing is Gross!!!

My Desktop PC picked up uKash today
Windows 7

I've scanned with malwarebytes and superantispyware and stinger
Malwarebytes found two viruses and deleted them... but the problem is, it "locked" all my files
All the icons on the files on my computer have changed and the size properties have changed to and the wording on the files say "locked" and then the file name.

I have rebooted several times and scanned in safe mode several times.
No other viruses found but still the files are "locked" and do not open

you might want to see if your files are still there and hidden. Perhaps running unhide.exe if the above is incomplete. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...

theoretically the malwarebtes should have removed a dozen modifications, if that isn't the case it was probably incomplete. I would advise against clicking on any of the .scr files that have been named locked as well.

Try this tool: http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?q...

It worked like a treat for my flatmate's laptop even though it was differently named trojan which locked her files :)

The decrypting tools only work if you have a copy of the original file to compare the corrupted file to. I don't understand this! Surely if I had copies of the original file I wouldn't NEED to decrypt the files?!

Anyway - I got round it just by right clicking on the folders which had been corrupted and going to Properties then Previous versions. The oldest one there, in my case, contained all the original files. I restored them and deleted all the "locked" files.

@ryko25, what do you mean by going to properties and then "previous versions' ..

I've got the same problem, some German malware (GEMA - UKASH - whatever) blocked my pc, I've used Kaspersky to unlock my pc. But now most of my files are locked. Nothing works so far..

I need my photo's for my FINAL exams next week!!

Could really use some help pls!

Just download Ubuntu and run the live disc. Copy the pics to a thumbdrive.
