We have a client with a Windows 7 PC with the TorrentLocker Ransomware infection.
It claims its Cryptolocker but isn't.

Re http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/547708/torrentlocker-ransomware-cracked-and-decrypter-has-been-made/

They have no backups whatsoever so even if the TorrentUnlocker program still decrypted the files they couldn't use it.

Is there anything they can do right now without paying? We don't want to make it worse by trying to remove with malware software.

One thing I didn't think about.
Cheers.
