Hello.
I figured something like that would happen. The infection right from the very start was nasty but we managed to kill some of it off. Sadly the malware also messed around with system files and has now trashed the machine.

I recommend formatting now.

Well that wasn't very nice of them was it. Thanks for all of the effort.

Is it safe to copy some photos and music that i haven't backed up yet to my external hard drive?

Thanks again
