For several days now, my computer is under attack by .lnk.enciphered virus. All my files have this extension and the icons are all the same. When I clicked on those files it shows this warning ““Attention! All your files are encrypted! You are using unlicensed programs!”
This .lnk.EnCiPhErEd also wants me to pay 50EUR to get my computer back. It says that by paying the amount, I will be able to decrypt all my files. Are there any free ways to remove the encryption? It is verified that the files are encrypted because when I hover the mouse on icons, it displays that file type is CRYPTED.
The virus also insists that I have illegal programs on my PC even though all my software are genuine. I never have pirated materials. Please help me remove the “.lnk.EnCiPhErEd” file extension. I want my original icons back and most of all, I want this virus out of my computer.
