Hi aelzagaf,

Wait for a qualified remover here. It's well over midnight here in old Europe, so wait until later.

In the meantime just read here: https://ccm.net/forum/affich-1066223-file-extension-changed-to-datawait
but do not take any action yet.

Please, wait for a qualified removal expert here to help you through the cleansing procedure
and present logs as asked for here: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=194892.0
