Need help with removing CryptoWall 3.0 virus.

  1. Hope someone can help my system has become infected with CryptoWall 3.0 virus.

    So far I have,

    Restarted Windows 8 in safe mode with networking
    Run SUPERantispyware Professional to remove the virus/maleware
    Restarted Windows 8 in safe mode with networking again
    Run SUPERantispyware Professional seems to have removed the virus/maleware
    Restarted Windows 8 and run my Malewarebytes Premium, seem to be fine returning no results after a full scan

    Tried to do a system restore but for some reason there is no longer a restore point available, probably due to the virus

    Here is the problem, CryptoWall 3.0 virus has deleted all my original txt and image files and replaced them with .MPATTTA file format. This is over multiple harddrives(6 drives), even external drives so I have essentially lost all my children photographs plus all other data unless I am willing to pay the extortion fee of around $1000. I know this is a scam can anyone tell me how to resolve the problem please?

    I would be eternally great-full.
