    Yup, general public can bitch and moan about 100K salary but not much they can do. The biggest beneficiary are the employees, especially ones with colleagues on the list.

    It's probably cryptolocker.

    If you don't need any files then re-install from a clean OS CD.

    Re: Re: What to do with inlaws?

    With a paid off house (I am assuming), and a government pension, I don't think you really need to do anything. As for emergencies, your wife has a brother there so I think it's fine.
