That should have said ENcrypted or encoded.   The encryption is, for all practical purposes, impossible to decode (except by the crooks who encoded it).  So yes, even if the malware is "easily" removable, you are left with scrambled, unusable files.

I continue to use CryptoPrevent on all my systems, as well as MBAM PRO on my primary computer.

Ah, my mistake lol. Never reread it. Anyways, edited it. Thanks.
