    What "virus"? At least one such recent virus has a recovery option, but it has to be done within a time limit. You need to say which virus for us to know if a proper recovery is possible.

    Two alternatives are (1) to pay the ransom within the time limit and (2) to wipe your system clean and restore from backups.

    Sounds like ransomware. It's a new trend capitalizing on the fact that most people do not back up their data. They hold your data and pictures hostage until they get paid. Run an anti-virus and let us know what it finds. We may be able to help.
