My files are encrypted with aimmkvi
Posted on 2015-02-04
My young nephew downloaded a game and whilst installing the game my Desktop (windows 7 x64 bits) got infected with bit-loggers. I presume the game which my nephew downloaded has bit-logger along side with it.
I downloaded and purchased spyhunter to get rid of the Bit-Logger / Spyware. Spyhunter completed the scan and was able to get rid of the bit - loggers executable files. However, the problem i am facing now is that all my files, including pictures, word documents, etc are encrypted and i cannot open them anymore. Their extension files are prefixed with .aimmkvi
Upon the completion of scanning my pc with Spyhunter, I have also downloaded trojan killer, super anti-professional softwares to scan my pc and was able to get rid of all the junks and spyware. However that did not get my files back to their original extensions (ie Pictures) - rather they remain as .aimmkvi
This is very frustrating and I am requesting if any of you have ever come across this problem and how to troubleshoot it.
