If your PC has been infected you first need to cure the infection, then recover data.
I suspect Mr. Spector would refer you to his PC World article on Malware infections.

What's the Question?

FascistNation is right. But I don't have to recommend the article because he already did.
Now, about your files. Can you tell us what malicious program infected your PC? There's a really bad one going around, CryptoLocker, that encrypts your files. The only way to get them back, assuming you don't have a backup, is to send the perps money.
