      Read this, especially the entire first page
      and here

      Do not pay the ransom, hopefully you have a good backup on a separate disk.

          This exact mechanism is discussed in linked articles

          in my post above. Recovery may be possible, but from what I read is not very likely unless you have extensive backups. You may be looking at a total re-format and re-installation of Windows, at the least you probably should find a known clean PC and download one of the major antimalware companies (like Emsisoft, McAfee, Norton, Avast etc.) cleaning disks that you burn to DVD or USB, boot your infected PC with that and let it attempt to remove the malware. Recovery of the damaged files is the big unknown.
          Never, ever download cracked software, key generators etc. This has been a favorite attack vector of malware distributors for the 40+ years I’ve been involved in computing (we used to give warnings on the old BBS systems back in the early 1980s…yes, I’m old!, Hehe)
          Good luck, and there are probably several forum discussions about formatting and re-installing Windows, just do a search!
