What should I do if I get infected?

First disconnect the internet and all the mapped network drives and folders, as to prevent others from getting effected.


Remove CryptoLocker, download and run Malwarebytes.


After you have done with Malwarebytes download and run Hitman pro using free license.

Recover Files which were Encrypted by using Shadow explorer.


Here is the guide to use Shadow Explorer


Unfortunately decryption CryptoLocker is not possible, like earlier on Decryptlocker where you can upload your infected file and get the decryption key.

Take your best discussion, never pay the ransom amount there is absolutely no guarantee that you will get your files back, the best thing you can do is recover your files and folders.
