i have a problem with my Excel files, when trying to open the file and print it, that all my Excel files had been relabelled as .doc files and all .jpg had become .exe.

Doing a bit of research and finding other things on the computer that should not be there, I came up with this virus as the root cause: W32/Zaflen.a

I have been able to edit the extensions of many of the files and return them to their proper formats, but the problem I am having now is that my excel files will no longer open... gives me an error that it cannot interpret the file and shows me the binary equivalent of a big pile of diarrhea.

what should i do this so that i can open my excel files..this files is very important and i need to recover it..
