Windows folder labels start with $

kiwikidd77, Apr 26, 2:19am
I'm working on sorting a friend's computer that was infected by a crypto virus and note that there's a number of folders now with labels like C:\$windows which have multiple subfolders.

also there are many entries in various folders with files labeled help_decrypt with extentsions like html and png. Can I simply delete these folders and files or is there a specific way to get rid of this problem? I have bit defender and malwarebytes antimalware installed.

I'm using ztreewin to look at folders and files.

Thanks in advance for any input and suggestions.

Has it been detected as Cryptowall or cryptolocker.?
Has a good explanation here . If it is the true encrypted version . send a file here .
