"dusvlcg" File Extensions

The extension "dusvlg" has been added to most of my files (ex. word, PDF, pst, etc) by itself and I'm no longer able to open those files. Tried to re-assign thier extension from the control panel, default programs to thier orignal default programs, but it did not work.

Can you post a screenshot of one of your folders with the extension showing? Google is turning up absolutely nothing with the term dusvlcg whatsoever.

Tha OP said the extension was "dusvlg" not "dusvicg". That looks to be either Afrikaans or Dutch but that is not much help anyway. I would recommend a thorough scan for nasties on this machine.
OQO What anti virus are you running? Do a full scan on that then try Malwarebytes.

dusvlcg in the thread's title.
dusvlg is in the body of the post.

The title is probably correct. Seven random characters added as file extension is noted here: Alert! Malware/Ransomware variant, changes file extensions to random characters - Spiceworks

:-(

edit: The virus has changed the file extension

So should Malwarebytes be worth running
EDIT Having just read the two links above, I have answered my own question! Situation seems more serious than I first thought.
