    The dutch police has started a site to warn for ransom ware and help with decrypt software:

    I hope no one has ever had troubles with this ransom ware.

    I do most of my web surfing with a Windows 7 laptop that I conceder expendable. Expendable in that I can wipe the hard drive and restore it from a Ghost back up and be back in business within about 1/2 hour. It has been hit with ransom ware from clicking on a link from Google while searching for some particular piece of info. Not porn or game related usually some technical subject. When it happens I don't get weird, I simply shut it down and restore the HD from my backup basically thumbing my nose at the jerks that think they may have another victim.
