What is CryptoWall?

CryptoWall Decrypter or CryptoWall is a kind of unwanted application which can be installed on the target computers without asking permission. CryptoWall Decrypter installs on the system when downloading free software, nowadays most of freeware download websites are using shady download clients that offer installation of additional browser extensions with the chosen free program; thus, reckless free software downloading can easily end up in this program or other infections.  This ransomware can affect all versions of Windows incorporating Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

What does it do?
When Crypto Wall is installed it will scan your computer for data files and encrypt them.   So you will see files are renamed with DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION.TXT, DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION.HTML and DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION.URL. The name on the web page refers to “CryptoWall decrypter” and the ransom is $1000 USD.

What does this mean ?  How do I get rid of it ?
This means that the structure and data within your files have been irrevocably changed, you will not be able to work with them, read them or see them, it is the same thing as losing them forever.   Removal – sorry I would only have a professional remove this virus. 

How to protect your machine:
Make sure your restore is turned on.
Make sure you always backup your data and other files – make sure it is incremental backups as the virus can carry over to your backups.
Do not click on anything you are not 100% positive is safe.
