CryptoLocker, CTB Locker Virus, and other that encrypt your data

We seen this virus for the first time this year and it ransomed all of the pictures and documents one of my customers computers. Without an off-site or detached backup the files are virtually impossible to retrieve without paying the ransom. Some people infected with this virus have found success in restoring a previous version and with sites willing to decrypt the data.

These are only a few of the web sites returned by google to help resolve this problem

You need to tell the Windows 7 computer that you want to use the machine as a file server and that it should allocate resources accordingly.  Set the following registry key to ‘1′:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache

and set the following registry key to ‘3′:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\Size

After making these changes restart the computer.
