Last Thursday I reeived an email from a 'Luis Shipley@linkedin', which said it was a resume. As we are accepting resumes right now for a lineman position, I didn't think twice about opening it. HUGE mistake! From there I got all sorts of Trojan worms and viruses. Our local computer fix-it guy got rid of the viruses, took off my Symantec protection that did not protect me, and installed Microsoft Security Essentials and Malware Bytes. He could not, however, get my word, excel, and Adobe to work. I also had another computer guru do a remote session, and he was unsuccessful. He used FileHippo and installed Open Office to test files...all to no avail. Our internet provider said there is no fix. These files are all corrupted, and my backup is from last year. Dumb, I know...I will now be backing up weekly. Can anyone help me recover these files, or is it a lost cause? I greatly appreciate any advice you can give, so I can finally heal my computer AND my weary mind, or heat up my scanner. Attaching a sample file. I am just sick...help, please?
