If your files have been encrypted then I'd just as well presume they've been permanently deleted. I try to keep a backup of my most important files. And if you use an online fileservice with file versioning you're immunized against encryption.

Also want to plug, again, the excellent RequestPolicy extension for Firefox. Its a bit extra work to visits sites but it'll guard against most types of banner injections, as all external links used on a webpage must be whitelisted by you manually. Malware typically communicates with an unknown external site, so it cannot connect untill you allow it.
