    The attack, which was targeted at US users, hit websites including the New York Times, the BBC, AOL and the NFL over the weekend. Combined, the targeted sites have traffic in the billions of visitors.

    I meant links for ransomware, not anti-ransomware.

    I had it installed and afterwards, it opened up and told me I was protected. I did not read everything it said, and I "x" it out.

    NOW, I tried to open its desktop shortcut, but it will not open.

    *** adding : I went to its file location > right click at the exe > click Send to > desktop shortcut..
    Then I tried to open the exe shortcut, it will not open.

    I have Malwarebytes free edition installed. Does that mean something. Perhaps a conflict ?
