I had this happen and it turned out all they did was hide all my files. Go into control panel and click on folder options and select show hidden files/folders and click ok.

It seems the intruder used something to wipe out all the files. I have scan the hard disc and I can retrieve most of the files. So i will be performing a format and then try to retrieve them. Not sure how i got this intrusive entry but it is disturbing for sure.
Update: Files are retrievable. No encryption or anything was used so I kinda consider my self lucky.

If you talk about ransomware, I believe it will encrypt your files automatically.
Nevertheless if you really want to dig further into this intrusion, I guess looking at your logs will reveal something of interests
