    Thanks Everybody for your replies,

    I don't the have the virus now. I had it couple of years ago. Back then it was $500. I guess they lowered price because the newest one is $300.

    I didn't send the B words nothing and never will.

    Most of my important files are written in another language. The virus didn't effect those files. The files that where encrypted, I just wrote them off as deleted.

    I don't know why the FBI, SEC, CIA or somebody can't prosecute the scammers. Included with the virus are the instructions as to where to send the money. This would be a good place to start the investigation.

    I got another virus from a purposely corrupted USB stick.

    I couldn't find it with AV but finally did with Kapersky.

    I had Kaspersky at the time I got the WannaCry virus but had it turned while I was doing something I shouldn't. Once I turned it back on it found and removed the virus immediately. But did not decrypt the encrypted files.

    Since that time I haven't got the virus again.


    Steve C and simrick,

    I can't find the Windows Features Window you show in your screen shots.

    Sorry I was so late in replying.

    Just enter Turn Windows features on or off in the search box

    Yes, you could. I have on my main system. Even though it's fully patched and supposed to be safe from this sort of attack.

    So active in fact that the Live tracker (PewPew) paralysed Chrome (Version 60.0.3104.1 (Official Build) canary SyzyASan (32-bit)), so that I could not switch tabs, and I had to use Taskmanager to shut it down! (this Chrome build is quite buggy)
