Optimal_Illusion: GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve:The simplest solution is often the best. I'm open to rebuttals however.Here's the thread. While the article is funny, as far as the advice in the thread goes, I think the idea is better safe than sorry, and sometimes you need the ghostbusters more than the tiny medium to rescue your little kid from the spirit realm. That's not to say you can't add Power Eraser to the lineup for extra punch.
Optimal_Illusion: We had a discussion on this in a different thread a couple of weeks ago. One Farker recommended that when you think you've got one of these new bugs in your compy, you use a clean one and download RKill, TDSSKiller. ComboFix, and MalwareBytes to a USB drive. Then start the infected one in Safe Mode, (you may have to turn off your wireless connection, or disconnect from your physical internet line, some of the Ransomware only kick in if the 'Net connection is active) move the new programs to the desktop from the USB, and run them one at a time in the order listed. Each one is a specialist in seeking out and getting rid of particular malware functions, and by the time all four have done their thing, your machine will be a clean machine. I've also heard good things about Norton Power Eraser, mentioned in TFA.
