Recently my computer was attacked by a virus that was called 'west yorkshire police association'.
The virus after a while was successfully removed but all the documents in my computer were locked.

Those who removed the virus tried a little to unlock but did not do it.

Is there a way of unlocking them or I have lost all of them.
I do appreciate anyone who has helpful information on this.
Thanks in advance :hysterical:

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
