Hello, Welcome to MALWARETIPS.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

KOTI Ransomware, is a file-encrypting malware from STOP/DJVU family.

Navigate to this topic.

Submit a sample of the compromised files for their review.
They will reply and let you know what you are dealing with.

From what we know now, your files are not recoverable.
Your only solution would be to restore the files from a good backup if you have one.

The compromised files can be transferred to a CD or Flash drive.
Should a solution be found in the future you may be able to restore them.

Good luck.

If you have issues with this computer orther than opening your files pease run this tool and I will have a look at your system.

Download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST).
Choose the 32 or 64 bit version for your system.
and save it to a folder on your computer's Desktop.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

How to attach a file to your reply:
In the Reply section in the bottom of the topic Click the "more reply Options" button.

Attach the file.
Select the "Choose a File" navigate to the location of the File.
Click the file you wish to Attach.
Click Attach this file.
Click the Add reply button.

Please post the logs for my review.

Let me know what problems persists.

Wait for further instructions

There is not virus.
Your files were all damaged.
You can keep them in the event that a solution if found in the future.
As I previously said your can keep them or delete them all it's your call.

Run the Farbar program I suggested above.
I will review the logs.

Let me know if you WANT to keep the bad files or NOT.
