Hello, I recently opened an e-mail attachment that was sent to me and from then on all the files in my hard drive have turned into .enc files (encrypted) and I cannot access them anymore. I am using a XP Professional edition OS. So after a lotta failed attempts to fix this I re-installed my OS and though the system drive looks clean those darn .enc files still remain. I had so many important word, excel and pdf documents which I'm not able to access. I read in google that the .enc files are just encrypted and compressed but they are still there; only they don't seem to open. Any help on retrieving those files? Is there any software that I can use to decrypt them?
