Ahh Ransomware. Had two cases of it showing up on my computer and some are worse than others with dealing with it. Luckily, I have dealt with all the annoying malware myself. I might have some malware on my computer that I don't know of, but at least its not preventing me from using my computer.

If you don't already have one, an anti maware program is a good idea.

While I appreciate what you're trying to do here, OP, this isn't really news. The ransomware you're describing made headlines in major newspapers several months ago. The following articles were all published in December 2012:

New York Times
CBC
BBC
