I'm not generally told when new keys are found and added to such a database, however I don't expect that our malware analysts would have had a chance to add many new keys.

Some Anti-Virus software may terminate it, or cause it to fail to execute.

This program does not need forced administrator rights.
You should check your PC for malware and reset Group Policy rights if they were installed without your knowledge.

Let's try getting a diagnostic log. The instructions and download are available at the following link:

It might also be useful to get logs from FRST. You can find instructions for downloading and running FRST at the following link:

We have not acquired any new keys since the release of the decryptor. The criminals stopped using that server by time we got the keys, and have been infecting users from another server.

As I’m in the same case as many, would it  be useful for you if i send  a bundle of crypted and not crypted files to help emsisoft find more “keys” and update you’re decryption tool effective (for mega locker)?

You can use external file hosting services and give us a link to download encrypted files and other files.

But we do not know how much this will help in your case.

Unfortunately that won't work with the type of encryption that MegaLocker uses. If it did, then our decrypter would allow everyone to get their files back without us needing to have their decryption keys on file first.
