Hey folks,

I’ve got a Windows 7 Pro machine where they have turned everything into a .id file.  Malwarebytes scan has named it PUP.Optional.ParentoLogic. Is there any way to recover this without sending on their bitcoin request?

Since you posted here, I will just say you are stuck. Currently there is no decrypter for it. You can read more HERE

I pray you have current backups of your data. The helpers can clean your computer but not recover your files. It is possible that in the future some one will find a decrypter for this variant.

I will ask for your post to be moved to the proper section of the forum.

 

PS, I would not pay the ransom. Some take the money and give nothing in return. It is up to you.

Porthos,

Thanks for the reply. No backups unfortunately.

I know this is no help, I repair computers for a living and it seems like the folks with current backups don't get infected and those without always seem to get hit at least with my clients over the years. In the future I suggest downloading  Macrium Reflect and purchase an external drive ($50us 1tb) and make monthly image backups. Unplug the drive after each backup to protect the backups.
