    Random File Encryption

    Hi guys, just joined because I'm having W10 issues.

    My computer started to randomly encrypt files, where I would have to manually decrypt them via the properties. Only issue now is that it says I have no admin rights, whereas before it was decrypting fine....

    Here is my pictures folder, I did not encrypt these files and folders myself, and I can't open them now.

    Please help! I don't wanna lose my files!

    Did you scan with a combination of an Antivirus and Malwarebytes? If so, which AV?

    Hi. You need to disconnect that system from the internet immediately, and shut it down, in case you have contracted a ransomware.
    Then you need to show file extensions to see what they are. Well, copy one and display it on another system, showing file extensions....
    You can go here to identify what you have:
    ID Ransomware
