.CORONA-LOCK extension on windows pc for all files.

Recommended Posts

Can you run any antivirus scans to look for the cause? If not I hope your backed up, I would suggest formatting all your drives and doing a complete fresh start over.

Image from my laptop screen  I am currently facing an issue on my windows PC. All my files have suddenly acquired a .CORONA-LOCK extension. I'm assuming it to be some form of ransom ware though there are no demands so far. Any help

Try sacrificing a nt important file and remove the end of the extension. Does it open normally

Please tag me @Windows9 so I can see your reply

Looks like some ransomware run a virus scan, and also try renaming one file that's not that important to not have the .CORONALOCK


I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help
