    This kind of infection is very difficult - impossible to fight.

    The best thing I recommend is using a backup of your stuff to get everything back.
    Or backup personal files and clean install.

    I did a factory restore and it cured my PC. I couldn't see any way around it, I lost all of my info but, I wasn't gonna pay the ransom to unlock my own PC. I wish there was a free antivirus to prevent this crap.

    This infection is still kinda new, I know Bitdefender Total Security 2016 has this protection, but I haven't checked other AV's yet.
