I am sure you have run a Scan with your Antivirus Software and checked with Malwarebytes ? ...

The next Step would be to upload the File in question to Virus Total ....

Windows XP should not be used on the internet.

ShoTTaS,

The file extension .blkpure you presented is rather unique. Have done some searching, but, no luck so far.

If VirusTotal does not provide info on it...
https://www.virustotal.com/

There are other scanners you can use to see if any of them provide information, such as:

Jotti's malware scan

ThreatExpert - Online File Scanner

VirSCAN.org - Free Multi-Engine Online Virus Scanner v1.02, Supports 39 AntiVirus Engines!

Comodo Instant Malware Analysis


Also, what leads you to believe it is ransomware?
