Some great people have helped me get a key that was hardcoded into the exe from the virus. (i dont believe it connected to c&c server, we have strict content filter and firewall in place). is there any tool available that will attempt to decrypt a file if i enter the key?

What type of crypto malware ransomware are you dealing with? If you're not sure, you can submit samples of encrypted files and ransom notes to ID Ransomware for assistance with identification and confirmation.

A key isn't worth anything if we don't know the encryption algorithm. So take quietman's advice and try to identify the ransomware first.
