What is Heimdal PRO?

Heimdal PRO is an additional layer of security that serves as a malware prevention software.

@never - well, the extra scans didn't recover additional files. Thank you for the feedback, I appreciate it. I hope you find something that could help more. I don't want to touch my hard drive and besides, I don't know any data recovery experts where I am.

Thanks again!

@Execute - yes, but unfortunately - not many. EaseUs recovered some files and Stellar phoenix recovered a few more, but the majority of my files, which i needed are still locked. :( I have saved them in another disk and will wait for a decryption tool or another method. Can you write to me and keep me updated if anything new is found?

never - I have considered the methods you proposed up in the comments. It seems that shadow copies is a disabled option on my PC. I also don't want to pay anything for data recovery software unless necessary - do those programs have free trials, or can you recoommend good free ones?

Whoa! Thanks for the quick answers!

mcinn - yes, I removed the virus with a security app, but still lots of files are locked and this is a major issue for me!

never - thanks for the tips - will try them out!

Darn! This thing hit me out of the blue! My work documents are locked!!

What do I do? Many of my work files are with the .locky extension and my back ups are a month old! Is there a way to unlock them?! Please help - these are important files!
Waiting for your answer!

Web Browsing Practices / Re: Maxthon Web Browser

My only concern is that is it more efficient than Chrome or Firefox because initially most of the browsers work fine and more efficient but after some time these browsers hang up and hang up as well as your computer.

I have been using the browser for quite some time now. I can tell you that it is, indeed, more efficient than other browsers! Not only does it load more types of web pages, but it is a cloud browser, and its base files are stored on Maxthon's servers. Also your history and privacy files are the only ones stored on your PC, so you can delete them. I recommend Maxthon!

I am not a tech guru, but can the encrypting/decrypting program named Control3 help for unlocking some files??  ???
It is hosted on its official site at

I have actually never heard of this browser before, but I find it very nice! It has an easy to use UI and it loads pages faster than other browsers I have used - just what I needed!
Thank you for posting this.  :)
