i scan the system & it looks right past these bastards. not sure how to proceed .

I would suggest you take a look here. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/702470/pc-infected-with-adame-ransomware-please-help/

Your best bet is to recover from a known good image file from before the infection. If you do not have backups, Unfortunately your data can not be un-encrypted at this time.

Thanks for the logs BUT... There is currently no way to recover the encrypted files. As for what caused this it most likely it came from an email attachment or a hacked/pirated software program.

Was Norton active when you were infected? It would not surprise me that it go past it.

If this was a computer of mine or one of my clients, It would be formatted and Windows reinstalled just in case.

The other site I linked to is you best chance of ever finding a tool to restore your files if one is EVER found.

You might have clean copies in One Drive or Dropbox if they were being backed up there.

Sorry to hear @Winomite1312

Once the computers have been wiped and Windows reinstalled - make sure you back up your data to an external drive to allow much easier and faster recovery of your system and data.
