    My system has a pumax virus. The c drive is safe. But in other drives, the files are pumax formatted and not executed

    Go here and upload one of the files that has been changed and post the results. I'm not getting any search results from any of the major malware removal sites. This one may be a brand new and no help may be found.

    Well I Googled it and there seems to be a load of info on this virus including anti-virus tools. But as I have been told by someone on this forum that I cannot tell people to have a look on Google I kept stum.

    So do you believe everything the internet tells you? You do realize most of the links that come up in a search are not legitimate malware removal sites. They want you to download software that will do nothing but do more harm to your pc. When searching for something like this you need to find links that are from Malwarebytes, BleepingComputer, Etc..

    Notice the search below and the bad links that appear. I see one from BleepingComputer but again, this is new ransomware that will have no decryption available yet.
