How to Remove Locker V2.26 Ransomware - Best Way to Delete Locker V2.26 Virus

I have this Locker V2.26 claiming to have encrypted the files on my computer. It is counting down 72 hours unless I pay 0.1 Bitcoin then it says that my files will be forever encrypted. However, I can still open and read these files, so I am a little confused to say the least. Shouldn't these files be 'locked' and not viewable? I can open them as usual - seems strange to me. I was wondering if this is a kind of double-bluff? Anyway , I'm posting my logs and hoping that someone here can help me out somehow.

I've just scrolled through most of the infected folders and some, but by no means the majority, of my jpegs seem to be unavailable and encrypted - seems totally random though.
