We have valuable patient information lost due to some kind of unknown infection. All .doc files were changed from xy.doc to [email protected]
I tried removing only extension addon, but that isn't the problem solver. I tried to HEX compare files that were backed up and those encrypted and i see many repeatable patterns through encrypted file.
If i provide non-encrypted and encrypted file, could you somehow give me solution to this?
There is no ransom screen or anything, and i haven't seen any processes running in the background that could do this.
I tried scanning the computer with NOD32 Antivirus, ERA Remover and Panda UnRansom locally.
I tried submitting to virustotal with these results:
EDIT: also .jpg files were affected with this
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
we have the exact same problem. It was probably downloaded from a scam email with an invoice from "deutsche telekom" like this:
Ihre aktuelle Rechnung für Ihre Kundennummer 67129 vom 11.11.2014 steht im PDF-Format für Sie bereit.

After one user clicked on the link with the zip file (after being warned not to) files on our network share started encrypting the same way you encountered, but with a different id.
I found on a bulgarian thread that had this problem and he emailed [email protected], the reply was to send 1 bitcoin to a wallet and afterwards they will send you the decode method.
(i used google translate)
any help, other than the ransom, appreciated
thanks and good luck

I am using Windows XP Home edition.
My MS Word edition is 2002
I created a folder to save my MS Word documents in.
I had problems with my PC so I had to use PC Recovery. After using the recovery, I cannot access my Word documents that are in the folder that I saved them to.
A box comes up with : "Word cannot open document. User does not have access privileges"
However, if I create a new word document & save it to my desk top, I can open it.
*I did not delete any user accounts when using PC Recovery
*I am logged on as Administrator
*My husband has access to his files, that are NOT in my folder, with no problem.
*My receipts from paying bills online are in that file, My husband thinks he remembers encrypting it so that no hackers could get access to the information in the files,
but that was more than a year ago & he can not remember how he encrypted it.
Is there any way to undo the encryption in MS Word 2002 so we can access our important files?? Maybe in the Registry??
This might be weird, but when did you recover your system? Was it back to a day or so BEFORE you made the word documents?
Like you type a document on april 20th, and restore to april 19th but cannot open it.
Win XP Home Service Pack 2 (build 2600),2.4 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4
8 kb primary memory cache, 2 hard drives: total 80 gigabytes.
Data folder contents are encoded, cause unknown. MS Word encrypts any data sent to it.
Following instructions on encrypt/decrypt in Help area of Win XP doesn't work.
I have 5 pages word documents, includes a front page without header/footer and has a page border. The second page has a footer starting page 1 up to the last page. When I saved the document in PDF. It created two files - one file come with front page only and second file come with page 2 to 4. I am looking at one PDF file instead of two. Your help is much appreciated. Thanks.

about encryption thing that can be done by CMD i have no idea what is about just try and follow it i'm not really know
that all the files that save on my desktop are being encrypted automatically. I saw windows asked to save the certificate then I save it on my desktop later on my PC error so I move all my files on desktop to external drive and do Windows reset tool completely

Please if somebody have solution please let's me know. Now i'm stuck with all my files like 120Gb :/

Hi New here
I am currently having a problem with Word 2003, when I drag a file from say desktop or any folder in to a word document.
The contence of the file gets imported into the word document I am writing.
All I want it to do is appear as a icon with in the document. I am able to convert that part of the document by doing the following.
-Right click on document which was imports.
-Then Document Objects > Convert > (Tick) Display as Icon.
This will make the document which was imported to appear as the icon.
Know the real question how do I set this function "Display as Icon" with so I don't have to always do the steps above?
Is there a patch or something in Group Policy that can be done or Registry Key change.
I would be gratefully thank full for any help

Suddenly, I cannot open an: .rtf Microsoft Word document file.
It is an incoming file from a trusted source.
I can download the file, see the corresponding file images, then when I
click on an image, I get a message from Micosoft Word (with the yellow
triangle enclosing an exclamation point) which says: The server application,
source file or item cannot be found. Make sure the application is properly
installed, and that it has not been deleted, moved, or renamed.
Please help me open this file, it is a work-related file, and I've tried so
many times already.
Thanking you in advance.
Was Office loaded on that machine at work?
If so it is my guess that one of two things is happening.
1) The Office dll that displays pictures is resident on the work network and is only loaded when it is needed - thus displaying that message.
2) A similar thing with the document that just the link (and thumbnail) to the pictures were included in the document. The actual pictures are still on the network.
I have personal document files that I cannot open. I get the following error message: "This file is unable to run because of missing or corrupted files. Contact your computer manufacturer."

I was working on a major report I received via email for work and didn't realise I was saving it in the temporary internet files and I need to recover it....can someone help me, I am desperate?????
Hi Elise. . .
If possible, go to the email and download it again and save it to your documents folder.
All files that are downloaded first go to the temorary storage area then are copied out to your chosen location. How do you know it is "stuck" in the temp IE file area?
What is the path (if known - like c:\users\<user name>\appdata\local\microsoft\windows\temporary internet files) and what is the name of the file?

Hello there, board! Any chance there's a VBA wizard that can help me out?
I'm looking for a bit of VBA that will help me update custom document properties in 50 + documents all at once. The files vary in number and in name, but there are times when I have to update the custom document properties in a number of them (always kept in the same folder, if that helps any). It takes a lot of time, think this can be automated?
One thing that would be handy is if it could start in Excel, where I could fill in the new values for the fields and then hit a button, choose which files (or folders containing files) need to be updated, and have it magically do it for me.
Is this possible? Or too ambitious?
Yes VBA can be used to do this. Can you post some sample documents ?

I know I have been hit by CryptoWall. I do however seem to see something that I have heard shouldn't be the case. I am hoping that this is a good sign. I have files that are duplicated but it seems that the original file is still there. ex.
Problem remains the same both files are encrypted. Didn't know If this has been reflected in other forums and is something that is recoverable.
A response would be appreciated

I am fairly new to macros and am looking to split a large word document into smaller files based on a text string within the document, and then save those files as individual word documents, or as a bonus, PDF documents. The text string is "HEADER DATA".
Basically, I want the macro to find the text string "HEADER DATA", then select that page and all pages up to but not including the next instance of "HEADER DATA", then cut those pages from the original document, create a new document with the same formatting/ page layout, and save that document with a new file name. I want the process repeated until the end of the document, and each file saved with a new file name.
Some attributes about the file:
The text string "HEADER DATA" is always in the same location on a page, but is not at the top of the page.
The format and layout of the new document must match the current document.
Here is something I came up with (don't laugh too hard, lol). This will extract the first pages as intended, and saves the new file, but then Word stops responding. I don't quite know what the error is. Thank you in advance for any help.

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.
I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...
1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?
2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?
I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.
If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.
Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.
As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.
I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.
If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.
This might be kind of tricky.
We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.
I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.
I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.
When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.
When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.
Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.
After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.
Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.
When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.
I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.
In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.
I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.
So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?
Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as Solved......to a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.
In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.
I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.
All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.
I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

When I send some friends a password protected word document created in Word 2010 they can't open it using word 2007 which is compatible with docx by using the correct password. I have no choice but to send as a Word doc instead of docx so they can open it.
Word 2007 User 1: Word launches no password box no error messages just the blue screen.
Word 2007 User 2: Gets the error message: ?Word cannot open this file . The encryption type used is not available. Contact the author of the file. More encryption types are available in the High Encryption Pack.?
Therefore I suspect some kind of encryption pack must be installed. I believe the user 1 has XP and user 2 has Win 2000 pro. are using XP. Do you know where these encryption packs are available? The other possibility might be for me to reduce the encription level when I create a password protected docx but I have no idea how to do that.
Is there a solution to this problem?
I've been looking at this for a while, but cannot find an answer.
The only thing I can come up with, is an alternate suggestion, which I am sure you have probably thought of : use something like 7ZIP to encrypt the file, and then send that to your friends.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.
Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

Well if you had encrypted it using the built in function, you would be prompted for the password in order to open it. If you had encrypted it using the Explorer properties for a file or folder, and it was done on the same computer you are using, with the same user name and password to the user profile, it would open normally and not ask for a password. If you used a third party application, you will need it installed on that machine to decrypt it.

I have a client with a problem creating new documents from the File > New > Word Document dropdown from Windows Explorer window. If I set her default font to Times New Roman it will stay for creating new documents from within Word. If she goes the other route mentioned above to create a new document it will always default to Courier. Also when she tries to save the document with the Save As item it defaults to txt instead of a .doc file. I am thinking there are two different templates for these two seperate ways of opening or creating a document.

When I download save or display a word document which is locked some of the fonts change and this makes the documant look bad and as a result it is not paged correctly.
I am using Windows 7 and MS Office Home & Business 2010.
If I use a different computer which is XP and 2003 the document displays correctly, if I copy this to the Windows 7 PC the document font is changed.
The lock document is a form which has been locked for easy completion.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

I have an old document created in Word Perfect 5.1 saved on a floppy disk. My present computer has Windows 98 and Microsoft Word. I need to edit and print the old Word Perfect document. Can it be translated to Word? Thanks.
You should be able to hit File-Open from Word. Change the files of type (at the bottom of the dialog box) to "all files, *.*" and just double-click the Wordperfect document. It should automatically convert it.
After that, if I were you, I'd go to Tools-Options, Compatibility tab. Change compatibility to Word document. Then, hit ctrl-a to select the entire document, go to Format-Paragraph and make sure line spacing is single; then change the font to Arial, Times new roman, or other Word font, as opposed to the old Wordperfect fonts.
On the 12th October I was editing a Word 2007 document on my Vista Home laptop. Throughout editing I pressed Ctrl S to save the doc over the previous version. I copied data in from several other files.
I went back yesterday to edit the document again and it has disappeared. The only version of the doc is a previous version dated 21st Sept.
I searched on all files modified after 11th Oct just in case I had saved it under another name. Not in there. The files I copied data from did come up in the search results though, soi knwo the search function is working.
I checked the default Autosave location - not in there.
I checked the recycle bin - the doc is not in there and neither are any ~ files or autosaved files. I haven't emptied my recycle bin for months.

I have an EFS encrypted microsoft xp pro word file that I desperately want to save. I started my computer one day and got blue screen fatal system error.
I've spent hours on phone with dell, microsoft, geek squad, etc. Nothing has fixed it.
Is all I need is to gain access to my user account one time, or find a way to get a copy of the encrypted word file off the HDD before rebuilding OS.
I have been able to hook my HDD up to another desktop as a slave, and can see the file and access tunencrypted data, but due to the encryption, it won't let me copy the file in question.
Anybody know how to solve this problem? I created the user account and encrypted file. I have the password to the account. I just can't boot to my logon screen.
Take the hard drive out of this computer and inert and install to another computer as a slave drive. Once it is recognized you can then use a file manager to go anywhere on the drive and retrieve any file you need. Then jsut put it back into this old computer and do what is needed.

the backup was from a system backup I made 4 months ago (Control Panel\System and Security\Backup and Restore) My hard drive was replaced last week and I'm trying to restore this doc. The backup was done under Windows 7 Pro; I'm running Windows Home Premium now. The file had been encrypted (green in explorer). Can anyone offer suggestions how I can copy and begin to edit this doc? Thanks in advance for your help Tom
I'm afraid that unless you backed up your EFS certificate from your Windows 7 Pro installation to be able to import/restore into your Home Premium installation, then you may be out of luck to gain access to it. That's what the encryption is for. No certificate, no access.
After you have restored the encrypted file from the backup, you might see if using the 30 day free trial of the Advanced EFS Data Recoveryprogram may be able to decrypt it.
Hope this helps,
I have Windows 10 on my Laptop.
It has MS Word 2007 in it.
I had saved some word files a few days ago, and had encrypted them with a password.
I moved them to my Hard disc.
Now when I am trying to open those files from the hard disc, It does not prompt me to enter a password like it did before, neither does it show any other message, it simple displays a blank blue screen.
I downloaded a repair software from "yodot", but it does not work, it shows a message "invalid file", when I select my file for repairing.
Please help me to open these files.
Thanks a lot,
I am having a huge issue at the moment where our shared files are being encrypted by a virus/trojan. This incident started this morning and was discovered in the afternoon but unfortunately most of the files (around 20-40 GB) were encrypted by this virus. The infected files are Pictures, Excels, Words and PDFs and the processes that likely were responsible for the encryption were shutdown and moved to a temporary folder.
The suspicious processes that were running were:
Using ESET Anti-Virus, they are identified as:
My question is - how can get my files back?? (I do have some copies of the original files before encryption)
- Are there decrypters out there for these viruses?
I believe this is something that many of you guys here have seen and experienced, if you could share your solutions I would very much appreciated.
Hello and Welcome to TSF.

Unfortunately, at this time there is no way to decrypt those files without paying the ransom.
To prevent more files from being encrypted, disconnect the infected computer from the internet.
If you haven't already, when you disconnect you may be presented with a screen from the malware writers telling you to pay to get your files decrypted.
Do not run any malware removal tools unless asked by me.
We may be able to recover some or all files from your Shadow Volume Copies, unless the infection has already deleted them.
Do you have another machine that you can use to download the tools to USB drive and transfer them to the desktop of the infected computer?
If so, we want all our members to perform the steps outlined here:

I am a technology consultant helping my client with a very infected pc- I have full remote access to the box and he is available if I have to run something on the box with no network.
His pc became infected with some ransomware scam - the main txt file reads:
Your documents, photos, databases and other important files have been encrypted
with strongest encryption and unique key, generated for this computer.
Private decryption key is stored on a secret Internet server and nobody can
decrypt your files until you pay and obtain the private key.
If you see the main locker window, follow the instructions on the locker.
Overwise, it's seems that you or your antivirus deleted the locker program.
Now you have the last chance to decrypt your files.
Open http://43qzvceo6ondd6wt.onion.cab or http://43qzvceo6ondd6wt.tor2web.org
in your browser. They are public gates to the secret server.
If you have problems with gates, use direct connection:
1. Download Tor Browser from http://torproject.org
2. In the Tor Browser open the http://43qzvceo6ondd6wt.onion/
Note that this server is available via Tor Browser only.
Retry in 1 hour if site is not reachable.
Copy and paste the following public key in the input form on server. Avoid missprints.

It appears that you have been infected with CTB-Locker - and unforunately it is a very real ransomware.
Please read below for more information.
The newest variants of CTB-Locker typically encrypt all data files and rename them as a file with a 6-7 length extension with random characters. The newer variants also do not always leave a ransom note if the malware fails to change the background, like it generally does. Compounding matters, the newer CTB-Locker infection has been seen in combination with KEYHolder, TorrentLocker (fake Cryptolocker) or CryptoWall ransomware. Unfortunately, there is still no known method of decrypting your files without paying the ransom and with dual infections, that means paying both ransoms.
A repository of all current knowledge regarding this infection is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this tutorial: CTB Locker and Critroni Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ
There is also an ongoing discussion in this topic: CTB Locker or DecryptAllFiles.txt Encrypting Ransomware Support & Discussion.
If you have any questions, it is best that you post in the discussion topic mentioned above.
To avoid confusion I have asked a Moderator to close this topic. Good luck.
System is a Toshiba Satellite L755-S5353 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Intel Pentium CPU B950 @ 2.10GHz 4GB RAM.
This laptop came into my shop with the FBI screen. After making full backup and scanning with Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, and Symantec Endpoint Protection on my "Server" I was able to actually use the laptop again. But when i go into my documents everything has a .html file extension.
If it is a word document, the file looks like this: "xxxx.docx.html." When I try to open the file it opens up Internet Explorer with a Decrypt Protect screen. Which I know is fake because it is asking me to pay a fee. The link it opens is http://mblblock.in/index.php. I tried to remove the extension but when i try to open the doc or jpeg is says it is corrupted.
Also ran rkill which found nothing. The Antivirus on the machine is McAffee.
I have looked at the backup i made before i did anything and still can open those files from the backup.
I completely reloaded the machine because my customer was in need of the computer. I do have a full backup and still have access the files I want to get back.
Any help would be appreciated!
decmblblock.exe Download Link!!!! This tool fixed the problem!!!
I downloaded the tool and ran it. I removed all the folders it wanted to search except the external i have the back up on. Took around 30 minutes to complete and could view those files again. All word docs, jpegs, and audio files work again.
I notice now i have duplicates of all files. One with the file extension .html(BAD) and one with the actual file extension(GOOD). Now all i have to do is delete the bad files and everything will look like normal again.
I ran this tool from MY computer. I plugged the backup drive into my computer via USB Adapter
