For years we had to convince clients that backups are necessary.
Usually we had to wait till a hard drive with important data on it died.

Now, with the spreading of CryptLocker, things changed. You can simply show 2-3 articles to a client and he'll ask how he can backup the data so it's safe.

CryptoLocker proved encrypting data and holding the key for ransom is a economically viable business, so expect a lot more of these type of ransomware to pop up. BitCrypt is an example.

And to answer the OP: if the program did it's job, you cannot decrypt your files unless you pay.

So your options are:
1. restore from backups
2. recreate your data
3. pay the ransom

Is there any way to block users to prevent/install such type of malwares.
Commented:
Yes. Considering that the main infection vectors are emails and compromised/malicious websites:
1. Keep your software patched so you don't get infected through exploits
2. Don't let users run with administrative rights
3. Don't let admins run with administrative rights, unless necessary
4. Get a good spam filter. One of the benefits will be that it will block most of the infected emails
5. Train your users to not open attachments from unknown people.
6. Train your users to not open attachments from known people until they confirmed that the sender actually sent the email.

A good resource is this: http://www.sans.org/critical-security-controls

The beauty of the Critical Controls is that they can be implemented one by one, and each successful implementation will greatly improve your organisation's security.
