I downloaded a fake software from pirate bay. (This particular software now seems to be deleted from pirate bay). The exe showed a lot (about 3/4) of positives on Virus Total, but I clicked on it anyway. The computer was immediately infected. Documents, pictures, music, etc all encrypted and with file extension oldsb-decrypt.
I used Malwarebytes free and it found and deleted several hundred files. I ran Malwarebytes several more times and getting 0 infected files, although one time got two infected files. I did a Windows search and it found over 2000 files with name oldsb.
I deleted all 2000 files. I don't care about my files because everything is backed up. Many infected files were on c/users
I noticed my Windows sample music ( like Beethoven) are gone and also Windows sample pictures are gone. The computer seems to run fine, maybe even faster than before.
I manually deleted a few other files on c/users that seemed to have any reference to the virus. I found one image, see below (that shows name of ransomware) I think I'll keep as a souvenir.
My questions are, do you think the computer is OK now? Where can I look in my computer to find any other files that are related to the virus?
Besides losing Windows sample music and pictures, what other differences will become evident after I deleted the 2000 infected files? So far, I can't see any problem with operation of the computer.
