    Hi, I am a victim of this WannaCry ransomware and most of my files are now encrypted. File extensions were changed to .WNCRY. To site an example, document files are renamed from mydocs.docx to mydocs.docx.WNCRY. Some were also renamed with random characters such as b6ysq1.docx.WNCRY.

    Are there any decryptor tools to recover .WNCRY files? How about the removal process for this WannaCry virus, is it complicated? Please I need every help I can get to remove this thing from my computer. Most of all, I need a tool to recover all files that are now having .WNCRY extension. I cannot open them. It gets an error each time I execute these files.

    Aside from having these modified files, all folders now have @WannaDecryptro@.exe and @Please_Read_me@.txt ransom note. Lock screen is also visible on my desktop with the following messages:

    Ooops, your important files are encrypted.
    If you see this text, but don’t see “Wanna Decryptor” window, then your antivirus removed the decrypt software or you deleted if from your computer.
    If you need your files you have to run the decrypt software.
    Please find an application file named “WannaDecryptor@.exe” in any folder or restore from the antivirus quarantine.
    Run and follow the instructions.

    .WNCRY

    That is my current desktop wallpaper.

    4. Run another scan using AdwCleaner

    – Open AdwCleaner.
    – Once opened, click on Scan button to search for malicious applications including WNCRY Virus.
    – To remove WNCRY Virus including all detected adware and malware, click on the Clean button.
