My laptop was infected with some viruses and I had to format my laptop. When I try to open my files after a format it says I have no permission to open nor to copy. When I look at the properties it shows some certificates which I have never created. How can I remove the encrypt option from file-- advanced properties.

 Hi Gismon
      Well bad news. It is EFS. And after format, most probably you lost the certificate. Now you see the file and foldernames in green color.
     All you can do is running EFS recovery. I hope you still remember old username and password, because it needs username and password for decryption attempts
