I have a laptop running W7 home premium that has been attacked by the Filecoder. all documents and photos have been hijacked. I ran Eset nod32 and it found 563 files cleaned 368, I also ran Hijackthis and malawarebytes.

The laptop is now clean but all those files are still locked out, is there a way to recuperate them?
is there a decryptor that can crack the hijacked files lock code?
or is there a process to try and get them back?

Last resort will be to advise that all those files are lost.
looking forward to a reply and some guidance

Thanks and regards
