A virus got in my PC (Windows 7).
It makes all files and apps with "mosk" so I cant open any of them.
Tried with all of anti-virus and anti-malware but it didnt work at all.
 
so every file has a new file type extension?

Sounds like you've become the 19, 897,785 th million ransomware victim...this month.

Alas, you must see and heed the advice above if you have no backup images to restore from...

Ransomware.

Your files are all encrypted.
So far, there is no publicly available decryption routine.

You might be able to remove the 'virus', but that does nothing for your files.

2 options:
  1. Recover from the backup you made before this happened.
  2. Full wipe and reinstall.
