If they're legitimate (i.e. they actually encrypted your files) then there is nothing you can do. Wipe the drive and start over.

what i do is start with clearing out fishy entries in the registry (run, runOnce, etc)

i disable every service except for bare minimum

make sure you've cleared cache/cookies and temp data for any and all browsers. DISABLE ALL EXTENSIONS/PLUGINS. if any browser is out of date, do full unistall and clean up any remaining registry keys as best you can

then, once the running processes have completely gutted, i get a scanner going and try to clear whatever it may pick up

if it does pick up anything, i google its behavior to see if any extra steps need be taken

i close with a defrag/reboot because most viruses i find are on some old cunts pc that has never defragged the motherfucker before
