I could really use some help. I recently completely eradicated a Root-kit virus that was causing pop-ups and extension problems on my Windows 7 64 bit operating system. Although it is completely gone, I now have over 19,000 files that have been made into .block files that were before that .docx, .doc, .txt, and more. I figured out how to change individual documents back into their proper extensions (.block - .doc ) but would rather not go through all 19,000 files individually and change back the file extension.
I have also noticed that after I change a .block back into a .txt that all the characters come up as a series of random numbers and characters. Also when I change a .block back into a .doc Microsoft Office 2010 refuses to open the document. (Microsoft Offices document recovery program built into Microsoft Office doesn't seem to do the job) I have about 20-30 documents that I really need to open and cannot replace ...
Does anyone have any idea how I can fix either of these problems?
