The CryptoMix virus may also be referred to as a CrypMix, CryptFile2, or Dharma virus. It is dangerous malware that is commonly known as ransomware, where the purpose of the virus is to take your files hostage and force you to pay the perpetrator (by way of bitcoin) to unlock your files.
Once the virus infiltrates your computer it begins scrambling your files, renaming them, and encrypting them. The virus then generates a .TXT ransom note (#_RESTORING_FILES_#.TXT) informing you of the takeover and what you need to do to recover your files.

How to open a WALLET file
There is no program currently available to effectively restore WALLET files to their original state. If you back up your files, you can execute a full system restore.
FileInfo.com recommends you never pay a ransom to decrypt files encrypted by ransomware. Paying a ransom encourages ransomware distributors to continue their efforts, and there is no guarantee that paying a ransom will give you access to your files. Instead, you should restore your data from a recent backup created before the ransomware infected your computer.
