    I currently have the cleaned drives from my cryptowall affected computer on my computer and have a new drive with a new OS running the system. Can you tell me what tools there are for decryption and if there's anyone that has gotten the key successfully and restored their files???? I am waiting for some brain to come up with a decryption algorithm so I can get to my files again……. PLMK if that happens, thanks. DLC
